Art is the focus of the art of Heinz Mack. Mack began in the mid-1950s Mack to experiment with different materials and, by chance, created a structure that enabled him to create serial forms and reflections on light. Soon after, he created his light stele, light rotors, light reliefs, as well as experiments with sand and grid structures. Mack produced an artistic repertoire within a few years, one that resulted solely from the philosophy of ZERO, an artistic movement from 1957 to 1964 that he founded with Otto Piene, and later also Günther Uecker, and which fast achieved international success.
The exhibits presented in the catalogue are, for the most part, works from the early and main period of ZERO and are being presented for the first time publicly here.
