Yayoi Kusama is certainly one of the most important post-war and contemporary artists of the moment, with exhibitions all over the world. Her work is not only of historical importance, but it also appeals to a huge, broad and international audience, and escapes almost all art concepts such as Minimal Art, Pop Art and Happening. Her work from the sixties, the time she worked in New York, was regularly shown in exhibitions around the world. Little known until now, however, was that her work originated to a large extent in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium, and was exhibited there, more often than in New York. A new publication by the 0-INSTITUTE will provide for the first time ever an overview of Kusama's early performative activities, not only recorded by Dutch and Belgian photographers; but staged exclusively for their cameras. Naked and painted with dots, dressed in her own designed "fashion," in the streets and the sex shop, or just in the Dutch meadows. The publication will give a different light to the artistic activities of Kusama, which was already so colorful and cannot be put under a single heading. Scheduled for Mai 2020.
