Damage Control

Body Art and Destruction 1968-1972

14.11.2014-15.02.2015 10:00-17:00


Opening: 13.11.2014, 6 p.m.
Curated by: Roman Grabner
Venue: BRUSEUM

To mark the exhibition Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950, which will be shown in the Kunsthaus Graz in autumn 2014, the BRUSEUM is dedicated to that aspect of artistic destruction which was neglected by the show conceived by the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington: Body Art in its early days from the special angle of actionist self-harming.

 

 

Thus a unique opportunity presents itself to place Günter Brus’ late actions within the international context, and to examine whether he was really the first to injure his body as part of a performance, and so whether he can be considered the “founder of Body Art”, as he is time and again described.
