The fifth of altogether nine presentations of the Marzona Collection focused under the letter M on Minimal Art, one of the core strands of the Marzona Collection. The second room situated Conceptual Art and Minimal Art in the geographical context of N for New York. The significance and vitality of this art centre in the 1960s and 1970s were vividly conveyed through magazines and artists' books. O for Ort (in German Site) looked at site-specific works of Land Art. At the end of the 1960s, artists such as Michael Heizer and Robert Smithson quit the gallery space and worked directly in and with the landscape. Soil, sand, sun and the tides became their artistic materials. Together with Minimal Art this trend led to the most radical artistic concepts of the day.
