This essay draws attention to minimalism as an important current in the post-war (or so-called neo-) avant-garde. Minimalism forms a bridge from post-war modernism to the avant-garde movements of the 1960s, and also picks up the tradition from the pre-war or so-called "historical" avant-garde movements. It opens the door to cross-aesthetic experiments and to the physical and/or social context. Taking the example of the Danish Experimental School of Art, the essay argues that the history of the post-war avant-gardes cannot be written from a national perspective, but should adopt a multilinear and transnational view.
