  • Summary: Organized by curator Harald Szeemann (1933-2005), the exhibition Live In Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form (Works, Concepts, Processes, Situations, Information) was presented at the Kunsthalle Bern in Switzerland from March 22 to April 27, 1969. Generally referred to by its brief title, When Attitudes Become Form was a sprawling and controversial international survey of postminimalism and arte povera at a moment when these movements had yet to gain wide exposure. Among the many participating artists were Richard Artschwager, Joseph Beuys, Walter De Maria, Michael Heizer, Eva Hesse, Alain Jacquet, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra, and Lawrence Weiner.
