The artistic work of Henry Flynt is considered one of the most well-preserved secrets of recent history. The artist was the first to coin the term ”Concept Art” and is considered among experts of the North American avant-garde scene as one of the central figures. However, a broad reception of the artist, philosopher, mathematician, economic scientist, composer and musician’s artistic work, produced only sporadically since 1959, has been rarely shown in public.

The exhibition ”Henry Flynt. Activities 1959–“ at the ZKM | Media Museum – which could be previously viewed in the Kunstverein for Rhineland and Westfalia, Düsseldorf – provides an overview of the artistic works of the artist born in 1940. Together with numerous publications, documents and other archival material, the significant selection of his works facilitates an understanding of the historical genesis of Flynt’s work, and classification of it into the contemporary historical context.
The exhibition, designed and presented for the first time in Düsseldorf, was produced in close collaboration with Henry Flynt.
