Will Grohmann in his introduction belabors the fact that contemporary art doesn't seem to have a direction, respectively a defined style, but that everything is pawned off as a novelty that was already new at some time since the Romantic era until now. The artists exhibiting he signifies as the generation after Picasso and the fact that links them to form the "Zone 5" is their desire to experiment. Illustrated with b/w reproductions of works by the participating artists. Contains list of exhibited works at rear. Gallery info printed to back cover. Text in German. Wraps with some wear along edges, small closed tears and chips and slightly rubbed. Small paint stain in blue and red in margin of Jeanne Mammen's work.
