Viennese Actionism by Pilar Parcerisas. Éditions Altar. 2008

Publié le par Olivier Lussac


To understand the full extend of this collective gesture of protest against history carried out in a brief space of time by Viennese artists in Vienna, it is essential to forget that they were born out of horror of national-socialism. As a product of the 1960s, Viennese Actionism and its extremism represent an artistic phenomenon of great contemporary interest, when we find violence resides everywhere behind the false appearance of universal space. Arising in a marginal cultural environment, this book looks at Viennese Actionism art as a convulsive, virulent re-encounter between experimental art and destruction.
