Interweaving the history of art, philosophical theories and concepts, and contemporary practices, this book invite the reader to ponder this paradoxical presentation of the void: how can you show something while showing nothing?
How have artists, architects, philosophers and musicians understood notions of emptiness and absence throughout the twentieth century? The question is asked through a retrospective of "empty exhibitions" we have already seen, those by Yves Klein, Robert Barry, Michael Asher, Maria Eichhorn or Stanley Brouwn.
