ZERO was unusual among postwar avant-garde movements: it had neither a manifesto nor a definite national association. Key areas of artistic exploration included color (almost always monochrome), light, motion, space, and seriality. 
ZERO foundation presents the most comprising ZERO exhibition since it's foundation in the early 1950s and 1960s in Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. ZERO was the biggest and most international art movement after the Second World War. About 175 works show the spectrum of media wich the ZERO movement were working with.
Based on a perennial research project of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the ZERO foundation in Düsseldorf, the exhebition will be shown from october 2014 on in New York, in Berlin and in Amsterdam.
The ideas of the ZERO movement founders were a new definition and change of the post-war period and an optimistic and idealistic view on the unknown future.

In true SHOWstudio 'making of' fashion, over four days in December 2006 we asked these twelve to each decorate a Nick Knight print with Swarovski crystals to their own design, capturing the results on film. The whole project can be viewed (with interesting comments of each creator) at:
