A richly illustrated text and catalog section emphasize the international character of the Belgian art scene between 1955 and 1980.
This book offers an insight in the international network of the Belgian post-war avant-garde, from the perspective of Vandenbranden’s art and his close connections with avant-garde group Zero. Besides works by Vandenbranden, it presents paintings, drawings and sculptures by his friends, colleagues or what one would call: his inner circle.
