The 1960s and 70s are considered decades of revolution and were a particularly innovative phase in art. The exhibition "Zero, Pop, and Minimal" programmati- cally directs the viewer's attention to the museum's own collection and, at the same time, to museum history. It illuminates exciting aspects of an epoch, which in past years were shown at the Von der Heydt Museum at most in small excerpts, but which to this day have a great influence on current art events: Alongside Pop, Zero and Minimal, conceptual art, art in public space, performances and photo- graphy developed as art media.

The protagonists of this time were local, but also international artists, who were still presented to the public without the nimbus of "assured value“. It was not until the art market began to form at the end of the 1960s that names such as Gerhard Richter, Nicolas Schöffer, and George Segal became world-famous. The show thus invites visitors to encounter high-ranking works by internationally renow- ned artists, while at the same time enabling them to rediscover numerous lesser- known positions that are worth re-evaluating.
