'Matrix and metaphor', 'emptiness and volume', 'overlayering and penetration', 'system and syntax' and 'form and structure' are terms Hartmut Bohm offers to his audience in exploring his work. Known for his use of industrial materials, Bohm is one of the most influential German non-figurative and minimalist artists of his generation. Hartmut Bohm is the first substantial publication of the artist's work to be published in the English language.

As a major influence in Europe's Constructivist art movement in the 1960s, Bohm's art has been included in numerous revolutionary exhibitions, such as the 1964 exhibition Nouvelle Tendance at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs at the Palais du Louvre, as well as one of the first survey exhibitions of Kinetic art in Europe: Kinetika in Vienna. His later work steps away from geometric art and its dogmas, and explores mathematical systems through simple and repetitive installations, which aim to find discipline and structure to confront and oppose the chaos of the world.

His work is currently included in 70 public collections worldwide, including the Neuberger Museum of Art, New York; Busch-Reisinger Museum at Harvard University, Massachusetts; Kunstmuseum Bonn; Museum Ritter, Waldenbuch; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek; Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich; and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, amongst many others.
