Hans Haacke, Blue Sail, 1964-1965, installation
Haacke's early work as a conceptual artist focused on systems and processes. Some of the themes in his early works from the 1960s, such as Condensation Cube (1963–65), include the interactions of physical and biological systems, living animals, plants, and the states of water and the wind.

Cesar (César Baldaccini) was at the forefront of the New Realism movement with his radical compressions (compacted automobiles, discarded metal, or rubbish), expansions (polyurethane foam sculptures), and fantastic representations of animals and insects.
