English term or phrase: minimalism
Definition from Bluemoon Art Glossary:
A movement and style of art from the 20th century which attempts to reduce art to the basic geometric shapes with the fewest colors, lines, and textures. Minimal art does not seek to be representational of any object.

Example sentence(s):
  • Though never a self-proclaimed movement, Minimalism refers to painting or sculpture made with an extreme economy of means and reduced to the essentials of geometric abstraction. Guggenheim Museum
  • The reduction of form, the controlled gesture and emotional outburst, the rationalistic behaviour and a sensibilized minimalism – these were the main features of an entirely different standpoint from the one dominating the painting of the preceding decade. Sava Stepanov ON MINIMALISM
  • While many people tend to associate minimalism with painting, the principle is also applied in the creation of musical compositions, theatrical performances, and even interior design. WiseGeek

Definition from own experience or research:
Americký smer 60. rokov usilujúci o redukciu umeleckej formy na minimum, rešpektívne o minimálny stupeň umeleckého vyjadrenia.

Example sentence(s):
  • Je minimalizmus diabolsky zvodný alebo božsky jednoduchý? Ide o rozpor medzi rôznorodosťou našej existencie a vyhranenosťou minimalizmu? - Môj dom  
  • Na rozdiel od ostatných súťažných prác návrh Yoshia Taniguchiho reprezentuje jednoduchosť koncipovanú kombináciou funkcionalizmu a japonského minimalizmu v detaile. - ASB  
  • Ako som už spomenul, začiatkom 60-tych rokov sa minimalizmus začína presadzovať už v širšom kontexte. Medzi prvých tvorcov minimalizmu radíme Terryho Rileya a Le Monte Younga. - Referaty, seminarky
