"Otto Muehl is an Austrian convicted child molester, who is best known as one of the co-founders as well as the most exciting participant of Viennese Actionism. He's the sort of guy who might fuck a swan, and then scream a little poem about it. In the sixties his aim was 'to overcome painting on canvas through staging the process of its destruction.' He made rhizomatic structures with scrap iron (Gerümpelplastiken), but soon proceeded to the 'Aktion' in the vein of the New York Happenings. Gradually, Muehl began to distance himself from 'Aktion.' He regarded the 'happening as a bourgeois artform, mere art.' This is an exact reproduction of his 1971 Psycho Motorik LP, which documents that very departure."
