Breathing In and Out

Günter Brus shot his own 16mm films during a pause in the development of his Action art. Like the works of Kurt Kren from the same year, they represent the artist´s attempt to distance himself from his previous films´ Tachist fury. In shots of relatively long duration Brus showed this process in Breathing In and Out.

(Hans Scheugl)


1967 Brus´ daughter was born, who alongside his wife, would remain his sole model. In that year his interest for the subjects of pregnancy and birth was reflected in three actions and films Pullover, Osmosis and Breathing In and Out.
