Zero 1, 2, 3

[Hardcover Edition]

Otto Piene, Heinz Mack, Zero Group


"Environmental and elemental art -- large-scale and sky art -- kinetic and technological art -- random happenings and programmed events -- multimedia shows: 'Zero 1, 2, 3' documents the birth, more than ten years ago, of these new tendencies in international art. It collects in one volume the three publications created by artists' collaborative, Group Zero, between 1958 and 1961." -- from book's end-flaps. Introduction by Lawrence Alloway.
