Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich which currently is showing Complete Concrete which runs until 30 January 2011
"The beginnings of this free, genuinely artistic manner of working date back to the turn of the 20th century, to the works of the classic avant-garde and the early concrete-constructivist painters. Their pioneering achievement was that they declared the fundamentals of art itself to be the theme of their art. They explored colours, forms and materials, studied proportions, researched structures and shed light on the social relevance of art.
The fundamental research which they thus initiated is far from over. On the contrary! Today, more than ever before, art production focuses on reduction, geometry, systems, structures and the critical analysis of the framework conditions within which art is generated or seen."

The Museum for Art Concrete at Ingolstadt is showing work by Nazi designer, friend of Goebbels and Himmler, Hermann Bartels, who liked including occult symbols in his work. Here is what Wikipedia says about him. I find this hard to get past.
