Conceptual Art
Conceptual Art emerged as an art movement in the 1960s. Term embracing various forms of art in which the idea for a work is considered more important than the finished product, if any. The notion goes back to Marcel Duchamp, but it was not until the 1960's that Conceptual art became a major international movement. It often overlaps with other avant-garde forms of expression (Body art, land art, performance art...) and its manifestations have been very diverse. Their common characteristic is the claim that the "tru" work of art is not a physical object produced by the artist but consists of "concepts" or "ideas". Conceptual art often makes use of materials such as photographs, maps, and videos.
