In art history, the term “Post War” refers to the period after 1945, a time of new beginnings and radical change. Artists question traditional structures and forms in an attempt to be done with the past. Painting becomes freer because artists refuse to deliver a message. And there is a new lightness in art. In this period, Concrete art meets abstract sculpture, and Art Informel encounters Zero.

A closer look at the art from this period changes our perspective on the topicality, subjects, and forms of contemporary art today.
