What can art achieve – and what can’t it? What comes after the destruction of the panel painting, after the scandalous provocations of the Viennese Actionism movement in 1968? Life itself becomes a piece of art. Can this work, or is totalitarianism already predestined here? What happens when failure is not an option, because people and their lives are directly affected by it?
