Otto Muehl: Temple Destroyer



Otto Muehl: Temple Destroyer
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Maccarone  •  Ongoing
 
Born in Grodnau, Austria in 1925, Otto Muehl is primarily known in the US for films and photographs of his 1960s' actions in which he attacked abstract painting and the picture surface. Over a period of ten years, from around 1961 to the early 1970s, we observe in his work a struggle to find innovative visual forms that also create a relevant socio-political statement. This neo-avant-garde phase of Vienna Actionism attempted to rehabilitate human depiction by emphasizing the political significance of the body. Indeed, the role of the body, its potential for liberation and sexual emancipation stand at the core of the artist's visual world.
