Many of today's artists display an affinity for the techniques and subjects of 1960s and 70s Conceptual art. Conceptual Art In The Netherlands And Belgium 1965-1975 takes a fresh look at the work of Bas Jan Ader, Carl Andre, Art & Language, John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Daniel Buren, Jan Dibbets, Gilbert & George, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Bruce Nauman, On Kawara, Edward Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Robert Smithson, Lawrence Weiner and others, in relation to the processes and themes of contemporary art. Considering the Netherlands as a melting pot for ideas and the importance of Dutch institutions in supporting and disseminating Conceptual art, this book excavates a rich seam in European art.
