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.


In 1991, Muehl was convicted of illicit drug use and sex with minors while acting, for 20 years, as the autocratic governor of the Kommune Friedrichshof, a commune in the Burgenland province, east of Vienna, where behavior was governed by an eclectic theory of sexual and political liberation called Aktionsanalyse. He was sentenced to seven years in prison, of which he served six and a half. See more »
