“The new “Serielle Formationen. 1967/2017” (lit.: Serial Formations. 1967/2017) exhibition of the Daimler Art Collection shows the re-staging of a pioneering Frankfurt exhibition from 1967. The original exhibition is being presented with loan pieces from both German and international museums and collections as well as works from the Daimler Art Collection. A total of 85 works by 66 artists are on show. This re-staging is a reference to the “Serielle Formationen” exhibition of 1967 which was originally curated by Peter Roehr and Paul Maenz for Frankfurt University’s Studiengalerie. It was one of the first German minimalist exhibitions at the time.
The “Serielle Formationen” exhibition shows artistic works which work with sequences, elements arranged in series, repetitions and variations of materials, objects and symbols. The intention of the Daimler Art Collection is to allow visitors to experience again the historic exhibitions significance and atmosphere, as well as its diversity and heterogeneity as well as demonstrating its relation to the political and social discussions of the time.” (Text excerpt from the press release by courtesy of Daimler Art Collection)
