About this title


This text is issued in conjunction with an exhibition by the same name, held at the Kuntsmuseum Wolfsburg from September 2007 to January 2008. Focusing on the phenomenon of emptiness, it juxtaposes traditional Japanese artworks such as calligraphy, Zen painting, lacquerworks, samurai swords and ritual tea ceremony utensils with selected Western minimalist artworks by artists such as Carl Andre, Joseph Beuys, Alberto Giacometti, Johannes Itten, Donald Judd, Paul Klee, Yves Klein, Richard Long, Barnett Newman, and Cy Twombly. The text also includes ten essays on a variety of topics including spirit, image and sound; calligraphy and minimal art; Japanese architecture; the Japanese appreciation of Paul Klee; minimalism and zen; and abundance and abandonment in Japan. Illustrated throughout with b&w and color photographs. No subject index. Oversize: 9.5x12.5". Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
