Hermann Nitsch

Six Day Play

1998
Oil and Acrylic on Canvas

200 x 300cm

In 1957, Hermann Nitsch declared that all of his performances were merely preparation for his lifelong ambition of the Six Day Play. In August 1998, this monumental project was realised as his 100th ’Aktion’: a re-enactment of the story of creation. By far his most decadent execution, Hermann Nitsch declared this project to be his pinnacle.
