Further Biographical Context for Hans Brandli
Born in 1955, Hans Brandli grew up during the 1970s and was influenced by the artistic culture of the time. The art sphere of the 1970s was epitomized by a wish to grow and reinforce itself, as a reaction to the many tensions of the previous decade. One of the most central movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which appeared as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative voyage of Process art materialized by combining essential features of Conceptualism with further reflections on art itself. The earliest 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 decline of Abstract Expressionism, Expressive figure painting slowly re-emerged and regained its prominence, predominantly 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 greatly influential and admired throughout the 1970s. Andy Warhol, for instance, fortified 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 international success, as they were widely acknowledged as renowned members of the Italian movement Arte Povera, much-admired in the 1970s.
