Documentation of the video installation and - performance "Art is making art" at the Taxispalais, Innsbruck, 1972 Video, black and white, sound, 9 min 12 sec Permanent on loan by the artist
The end wall of the gallery is covered with black paper. The artist cuts out as many pieces of paper as he can physically reach, , and makes them the identical size, until the wall once again has its original white appear-ance. A video camera records the action. At the end of the action, the monitor in front of the wall shows a white image—the original wall, lying behind the paper. The pieces of paper, folded to form black squares, are shown in the exhibition along with the endless video. (Richard Kriesche)
