The Anton and Annick Herbert Collection housed in the Belgian City of Ghent represents important positions in Conceptual, Minimal Art, and Arte Povera that can be described as paradigmatic. The collection is marked by two historical cornerstones; 1968 and 1989. It is on the one hand the political events of these two years that exert their influence on this extraordinary collection and thus lend it an unmistakeably political profile. But it is above all the choice of the work that uniquely reflects these periods of European change on an intellectual and philosphical level. The artists, for whom Annick and Anton Herbert have shown and continue to show such a committed interest, have each been involved in a radical new orientation, charging their works of art with critical consciousness.

Together with the Austrian artist Heimo Zobernig a radical presentation has been devised that aims to follow the collection’s chronological sequence.

Artists: Carl Andre, Giovanni Anselmo, Art & Language, John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Marcel Broodthaers, Stanley Brouwn, Daniel Buren, Jean-Marc Bustamante, André Cadere, Hanne Darboven, Jan Dibbets, Luciano Fabro, Gilbert & George, Dan Graham, Douglas Huebler, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Reinhard Mucha, Bruce Nauman, Giulio Paolini, A.R. Penck, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Schütte, Robert Smithson, Niele Toroni, Jan Vercruysse, Didier Vermeiren, Lawrence Weiner, Franz West, Ian Wilson, Heimo Zobernig.

Art | December 30, 2020
