Yesterday i added the MEDEDLINGEN nummer 14 magazine by the Centraal Museum Utrecht to my inventory. It was a special about Carel Visser and NUL/ ZERO. The article on Zero was an eye opener. The museum decided not to collect Zero art anymore, because they thought they had enough by the Informele and Zero artists already and they considered the ZERO mouvement not important enough to follow the ZERO artists longer. Zero was “history” they concluded.
Now 43 years later time has proven the Centraal Museum wrong, since ZERO, together with Minimalism, hav proven to be major and highly important mouvements in Art and it is likely that these mouvement will grow in importance in the decades to come.
