About the Author
The work of Donald Judd (1928-1994), one of the most significant American artists of the postwar period, has come to define what has been referred to as minimalist art--a label to which the artist strongly objected on the grounds of its generality. The unaffected, straightforward quality of Judd's work demonstrates his strong interest in color, form, material, and space. With the intention of creating work that could assume a direct material and physical "presence" without recourse to grand philosophical statements, he eschewed the classical ideals of representational sculpture to create a rigorous visual vocabulary that sought clear and definite objects as its primary mode of articulation. Claudia Jolles (24.7.1958/Vienna) studied art history, archaeology and german literature from 1979-84 at the universities of Bern, Geneva and Zürich (lic.phil.I). 1985 she was Collaborator of the show of Ilya Kabakov, "On the Margin", Kunsthalle Bern (Musée Cantini, Marseille; Kunstverein Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf; Centre des Arts Plastiques, Paris). Since 1989 she is working as a curator and freelance artcritic for different medias. Since 1996 she is editor in chief of Kunstbulletin, Zürich - the most read art magazine for contemporary art in Switzerland. Flavin Judd is artistic director of Judd Foundation and the son of Donald Judd. He oversees art installations, curatorial matters, and architectural projects for the Foundation including the design of the 101 Spring Street restoration in 2013. His art exhibitions, films, publications, and buildings have all been recognized with awards. He is coeditor of the recent publication Donald Judd Writings (2016). He lives with his family in France.
