Personal Quote:

It is the assignment of the artist to destroy art and come closer to reality. The artist has the responsibility to change himself and society as well.


Austrian performance artist, painter, writer and film maker. In the 1960s, his work dealt with the social taboos surrounding sexuality, to the point that "Art and Revolution," performed at the University of Vienna in July, 1968, led to arrests. After 1966 he was a founder-member of the Institut fur Direkte Kunst. See more »
