The 1960s

The 1960s is the decade, in which mass culture well and truly takes over. The artists of this period react to the spirit of the times, and highly experimental works see the light of day. Examples of the reaction are: the Fluxus movement, happenings, Pop Art, Conceptual art and the beginning of Minimalism. The works of this period also carry traces of Expressionism and Surrealism. Two particular examples of the relation of Conceptual art to language, materials and communications are: Sven Dalsgaard's green picture 103.7 cm and Arthur Køpcke's Piece no. ... . Examples of the period's various interpretations of the human body could include: Wilhelm Freddie's Surrealism-inspired La Dolce Vita, Kurt Trampedach's Expressionsm-inspired Communion Picture and Sonja Ferlov Mancoba's Modernistic Sculpture.
