No sympathy for the devil About

Günter Brus, Selbstbemalung/Selbstverstümmelung (Self-Painting/Self-Mutilation) and Vienna Walk, 1965

"The collage documenting Self-Painting/Self-Mutilation was presented at the Junge Generation Gallery, Vienna, the day after Brus’ first public action. The artist had walked through the centre of Vienna, painted entirely in white, with a black strip over his face and body. The dark paint was used as a symbol of mutilation. During this action Brus was arrested almost immediately by the police for being potentially disturbing to the public." - Tracey Warr and Amelia Jones, The Artist’s Body
