Erich Buchholz: The Inconvenient Footnote within Art History

McNamara, Andrew E. (2001) Erich Buchholz: The Inconvenient Footnote within Art History. Art and Australia, 39(2), pp. 256-263.

Abstract

Outside of Germany, the Berlin artist, Erich Buchholz, is not well-known. Yet he laid claim to having made the first abstract three-dimensional space, or installation, in art history. Buchholz was therefore at the forefront of inter-disciplinary practices in the 1920s, which aimed to span practices as diverse as the visual arts, film, design and architecture. This article examines both the basis of Buchholz's claim for innovation and the reason for his lack of art-historical prominence.
