Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] After the period of the avant-gardes, the Seventies were those in which most critically were discussed around making art, the status of art, the role it can have in society. Exhibitions, conferences, debates and journalistic criticisms have accompanied the individual realization of works and have been in some way, not only the reading key, but even the realization engine. Together with the critics, the artists wondered about the need to work within society and about the possibility of identifying a language suitable for this task. The aspect that strongly characterizes art after Minimalism and that differentiates it from the avant-gardes is that this relationship with the social is intrinsically linked to conceptual investigation, to an investigation therefore strictly inherent in art. In this sense in the art of the Seventies a completely new dialectic is realized between 'internal' and 'external', between a self-reflexive dimension and an openness to social reality. The essay questions this specific aspect by examining some exhibition events and analyzing exemplary works by artists engaged in confrontation with political and social reality.
