Douglas Huebler (American, 1924-1997)

Douglas Huebler was a conceptual artist who based his work in photography beginning in the late 1960s. From a personal history of abstract expressionist painting and minimalist sculpture, he developed unique installations of photographs with texts as objects, conceived from narratives, which he engineered from life. Implicit in his work are the abandonment of modern photography and its history of classification. Huebler replaced the artistic photograph with documents of process and strategies.
