Alexander Calder.-KINETISCHE KUNST. Men kan de kinetische kunstwerken indelen in bewegende en beweegbare werken. Bij de bewegende werken heeft de beweging in het kunstwerk zelf plaats, hetzij door middel van wind of water, hetzij door een motor of een magneet. Bij de beweegbare werken ontstaat de beweging door een ingreep van de beschouwer.
