"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 (Ger├╝mpelplastiken), 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."
