haracteristic of art after 1960 is the pushing the limits not only of its media (those conventionally defined as painting and sculpture in the 19th century, that is during the time that public art museums in Europe were established) but also of the places and contexts in which art is made and received. The institutional critique of art (institutional critique of the 1970s) led to a redefinition of the relationship between art and its presentation context. New genres such as performance, installation art, interventionist actions, appropriation art, relational aesthetics are no longer confined to institutionalized spaces aiming at presenting art, but they constitute historical benchmarks of how to show art outside the museum.
