BUREN ** CONCEPTUAL ART French artist institutional critique: - invention is a problem: art schools should not be about creating new thing - gets rid of all novelty o all typical signs of artistic creativity - paints stripes on placards and marched around NYC - works with three other artists who also stop inventing marks- not unique mark - immediately taken down- hanging across central pit of Guggenheim as competing with museum itself to make work ‘visible’ (HAACKE works also cancelled) - eye is redirected to space of realists - prioritization of idea over process - art can take place anywhere - says it is art- what is the frame: culture, museum, gallery, and then city o advertising - based on the width of the brush
