Material actions: Otto Muehl
At the beginning of 1965 Kren showed his action films in Berlin. Otto Muehl, who was becoming more and more interested in the controlled documentation of his actions, meets Ernst Schmidt jr. who fitted in better with his ideas.
In May, Ernst Schmidt jr. filmed the actions Rumpsti Pumsti and Bodybuilding. In this period Muehl conceived his actionist works almost exclusively for photographic and filmic documentation. The necessity for a spontaneous confrontation with the public, which played a major role in Muehl´s later actions, does not yet apply to these works. (Hubert Klocker)
(This film is part of Schmidt´s 20 Action and Destruction Films.)
