Hüttenstraße 104, 40215Düsseldorf
Open on inquiry
In 1958, would you have dreamed of writing art history? In that year, the artists Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Günther Uecker founded the ZERO artists' association in Düsseldorf, which developed into one of the most important avant-garde movements of the 20th century.
Conscious of their heritage, exactly 50 years later, in 2008, they launched the ZERO foundation. The foundation is a rather inconspicuous backyard on Hüttenstrasse. Here not only numerous works of the famous trio are shown, the visitors also gain an insight into the archives. Since the founders of ZERO have themselves contributed to the foundation, this “behind the scenes” experience is very productive.
