ON THE DEATH OF HERMANN NITSCH
“With Hermann Nitsch, a central figure in the art world is leaving the stage. His entire œuvre is unparalleled in the history of art in the 20th century, he made a crucial contribution to the change in our concept of art … Hermann Nitsch enriched the Austrian art scene with archaic mysticism and transformed the ritualized excess into art”, says Belvedere Director General Stella Rollig. The Belvedere collection includes nine central works of Nitsch and five joint works created together with Günter Brus.
