The OHO Movement (1965–1968) and the OHO Group (1969–1971) are important for the development of neo-avant-garde art in Slovenia. OHO involves artists with different ideas and interests. Critique of consumerist society paves the way for research about ‘the thing’ as distinguished from ‘the (consumer) object’. The movement morphes into a group, whose initial members (Naško Križnar, Milenko Matanović, Marko Pogačnik, Andraž Šalamun) practise land art, body art, process art and conceptual art. Towards the end OHO is characterised as ‘transcendental conceptualism’, striving to make the artwork ‘a medium for the detection of transcendental, esoteric and other spiritual content’.
