Launching Afterall's Exhibition Histories series, this book offers critical reappraisal of two shows that each responded to the 'new art' of the 1960s in West Europe and North America, including Arte Povera, Anti-Form, Conceptual and Land art. The famous exhibition 'When Attitudes Become Form' (Kunsthalle Bern) is analysed in relation to the paired and overlapping show, 'Op Losse Schroeven' (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam), with attention paid to the respective curatorial strategies and institutional frames.
Edited by Lucy Steeds, her Afterall colleagues and the Exhibition Histories Series Editors, this book brings together newly commissioned essays (by Christian Rattemeyer, Claudia Di Lecce and Steven ten Thije) and key texts from the time (by Wim Beeren, Charles Harrison, Harald Szeemann and Tommaso Trini), with extensive photographs and floor plans. Lucy contributes interviews with Jan Dibbets and Richard Serra, alongside those with Piero Gilardi, by Francesco Manacorda, and Marinus Boeem, by Steven ten Thije.
