ZERO IN BONN.

Bonn: Städtische Kunstsammlungen, 1966.

Small square quarto, 52 pages, 15 plates in black and white printed on glossy stock. Illustrated wrappers.

   

- First edition. Exhibition from November 22 until December 31, 1966 .Catalogue for the last ZERO group exhibition, after which the group dissolved.

'Mit der Ausstellung ZERO in Bonn beenden Heinz Mack, Otto Piene und Gunther Uecker offiziell ihre Zusammenarbeit. Die Ausstellung wird ihr letztes gemeinsam organisiertes und verantwortetes ZERO-Projekt. Die Präsentation umfasst sowohl einen Gemeinschaftsraum, in dem alle drei Künstler – allerdings in abgetrennten Bereichen – Arbeiten zeigen, als auch drei kleinere Räume, in denen Installationen von jedem einzelnen Künstler zu sehen sind. Es ist das erste Mal, dass Mack eine ganze Rauminstallation realisieren kann. Das Ausstellungskonzept spiegelt den sich seit längerer Zeit anbahnenden Bruch unter den 28 drei Künstlern wider. Das Ende der gemeinsamen Aktivitäten wird im Anschluss an die Ausstellungseröffnung in der Nacht vom 25. auf 26. November mit einem großen Fest, dem ZERO-Mitternachtsball, im 15 Kilometer entfernten Bahnhof Rolandseck in Remagen öffentlich gefeiert. Rund 2000 Besucher nehmen an der Veranstaltung unter dem Motto „ZERO ist gut für Dich“ mit Live- Musik teil. Obwohl es sich bei ZERO in Bonn um eine Dreierausstellung von Mack, Piene und Uecker und nicht um eine internationale ZERO-Ausstellung handelt, steht die Auflösung der ZEROBewegung in enger Verbindung mit der Bonner Veranstaltung. Aufgrund ihres großen Engagements für die gesamte internationale Künstlergemeinschaft stellten die drei Düsseldorfer den wichtigsten Motor der Bewegung dar – das Ende ihrer Kooperation kam somit dem Ende von ZERO allgemein gleich.'
