This exhibition is co-organized by and based on works from the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen.


Konrad Fischer, who opened a gallery in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1967, sought to be among the first to bring the latest contemporary art trends to the public eye and was to play an important role in introducing the international developments of the  minimal art and conceptual art movements.

In this exhibition, with the full cooperation of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen museum that houses the Dorothee and Konrad Fischer collection, we are proud to present approximately 100 works of primarily American and European minimalist and conceptual art from the 1960s and 1970s, including numerous artworks and documents being shown in Japan for the first time.
