The exhibition brings together the work of 14 artists of different generations, who developed their practices in the context of relatively heterogenous notions of abstraction. Respectively, they share a close relation to the program of Galerie Nordenhake and the majority have exhibited in the gallery, since its founding in 1976. All artists dedicated themselves with rigour and discipline to the exploration of specific aspects of abstraction as both a formal and referential notion. In doing so they developed conceptually different and, in cases, radical approaches, that demonstrate the diversity and inexhaustibility of the geometric idiom.
