Günther Brus: Artist postcard “Der Beerenbändiger, 1972” (The Berry Tamer 1972). The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 10,6 x 14,7 cm, good condition.

Günter Brus (born in 1938) is a controversial Austrian painter, performance artist, graphic artist, experimental film-maker and writer.

Brus was the co-founder in 1964 of Viennese Actionism (German: Wiener Aktionismus) together with Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, and Rudolf Schwarzkogler. His aggressively presented actionism intentionally disregarded conventions and taboos with the intent of shocking the viewer. Sentenced to 6 months in prison after the Kunst und Revolution event at the University of Vienna in 1968, he fled to Berlin with his family and returned to Austria in 1976. Brus urinated into a glass then proceeded to cover his body in his own excrement, and ended the piece by drinking his own urine. During the performance Brus also sang the Austrian National Anthem while masturbating. Brus ended the piece by vomiting and was subsequently arrested. Through this piece and his other performance works, Brus hoped to reveal the still fascist essence of the nation.
