Günter Brus. I move …

As one of the most radical agents of Viennese Actionism, Günter Brus made his own body a site of artistic debate starting in the early 1960s. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, the 21er Haus is launching a major retrospective exploring the complete oeuvre of this exceptional Austrian artist.

In his early works, it was the body that bore the painterly process; later, Günter Brus expanded his practice to imbue his actions and performances with other levels of meaning. The body became both membrane and metaphor for social transactions, and thus also the projection surface for his social critique. In 1970, Brus was condemned for his participation in the Viennese Action known as Kunst und Revolution (Art and Revolution), which caused him to leave Vienna. In his exile in Berlin, he produced a number of series of drawings based on his experiences in Vienna, as well as drafts for theatrical productions.

This major retrospective at the 21er Haus presents Günter Brus’ quintessential work cycles and illuminates connections between his performance art, his theatre projects, his ‘Bild-Dichtungen’ (image poems), as well as his collaborative drawings. A separate space within the exhibition presents collaborative projects of the artist with cohorts such as Arnulf Rainer, Jörg Schlick, and Dominik Steiger.
