Further Biographical Context for Silvia Schreiber

Born in 1956, Silvia Schreiber was primarily influenced by the distinctive cultural milieu of 1970s. The art sphere of the 1970s was characterized by a desire to grow and strengthen 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 emerged by combining essential features of Conceptualism with further considerations on art itself. The earliest ideas of environmentalism sprung from Land Art, which took art into earth itself, carving 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 status, predominantly in Germany through the works of critically acclaimed 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, fortified his status as a legendary artist, by branching out into film and magazine publishing, thus instituting a ground-breaking concept of cross-cultural activity for a visual artist of such popularity A few noteworthy international movements that sharpened the era include photorealism, which was firstly introduced in the 1960s and reached commercial and critical success in the 1970s, as well as feminism which deeply influenced the visual culture.
