The 1980s

In the 1980s Minimalist art goes hand in hand with Post-Modern expression, using the media of painting, installation art and sculpture. In 1982 De Unge Vilde (The Young Wild Ones) make their powerful breakthrough with a variety of ambiguous, expressionistic paintings. The desire to experiment with diverse materials is also a hallmark of this period. New Abstraction is an expression of the taboo-breaking investigations made by young artists. Examples of interest in material include: Torben Ebbesen's Brain Landscape and Claus Carstensen's Nine Contributions to the Critique of the Economic and Self-fulfilling Aesthetic. Berit Jensen's painting Untitled and Claus Carstensen's Le Plaisir du Text II exemplify Wild painting, a kind of Neo- Expressionism.
