Further Biographical Context for Günter Tuzina
Günter Tuzina was born in 1951, grew up during the 1970s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The art sphere of the 1970s was epitomized by a wish to grow and strengthen itself, as a response to the many conflicts of the previous decade. One of the most important movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which appeared as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative journey of Process art emerged by combining essential features of Conceptualism with further reflections on art itself. The initial ideas of environmentalism bounced from Land Art, which took art into earth itself, sculpting the land and bringing art to the outdoors. For the first time since the regression of Abstract Expressionism, Expressive figure painting slowly re-emerged and regained its status, especially in Germany through the works of world renowned figures Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz. Most of the leading artistic figures of the 1960s remained highly influential and popular throughout the 1970s. Andy Warhol, for example, secured his status as a legendary artist, by bifurcating into film and magazine publishing, thus introducing a ground-breaking concept of cross-cultural activity for a visual artist of such popularity Artists such as Jannis Kounnelis, Mario Merz, and Michelangelo Pistoletto gained worldwide success, as they were widely recognized as renowned members of the Italian movement Arte Povera, much-admired in the 1970s.
