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 Vikipedi:
Minimalizm, modern sanat ve müzikte, kökeni 1960'lara giden, sadelik ve nesnelliği ön plana çıkaran bir akımdır. ABC sanatı, minimal sanat gibi tabirlerle de anılır.

Example sentence(s):
  • 1910'lu yıllarda, Kazimir Maleviç beyaz zemin üstüne "Siyah Kare"sini koyarak yaptığı resimle Minimalizm'in ilk sinyalini vermişti. Maleviç kareyi doğada bulunmayan geometrik form olarak tanımlıyordu. Biçimleri en basit geometrilerine, renk kullanımını temel renklere, hatta nötrleştirerek siyah-beyaza indirgeyerek mükemmellik araması adeta tanrısal bir davranış gibiydi. Bu saf geometrik yaklaşım pozitif düşünceden metafiziğe kayan bir zemin oluşturuyordu. Maleviç beyaz üstüne beyaz çalışmalarından sonra resim yapmadı, adeta "nirvana"ya ulaşmıştı. - Bi Sanat  
  • Sanatta sadelik, basitlik ve azlık kavramlarını öne çıkaran yaklaşım. “Minimal sanat” ya da “minimal akım” olarak da anılabilir. - İşte Genç

Charles Ek Any chance it's just "Customer Service"/"Customer Service requests"? The Swedes have become fond of occasionally importing English terms in situations like this. See this example:
