Further Biographical Context for Margarete Hahner

Margarete Hahner was born in 1960 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and growth in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant tensions of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a key movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the sprawling outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating cryptic and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly influential figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art world, ensuring that global artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. The largely Italian Arte Povera Movement gained world-wide recognition during the 1970s, with artists like Jannis Kounnelis, Mario Merz, and Michelangelo Pistoletto achieving global recognition.
