Konrad Bayer and Gerhard Rühm - Gemeinschaftsarbeiten 1957-1962
Collaboration between writer Konrad Bayer and multi-artist Gerhard Rühm, who both participated in the art movement called Wiener Gruppe. Rühm was one of the most radical members of this group, who made it his aim to bring literature to the same direct level of experience as visual art or music. Bayer was also a great experimentalist, interested in dark romanticism and surrealism, and in montage/recombining texts.
This is concrete / sound poetry with instruments like piano and harpsichord, and voices from Rühm and Inga Artmann-Weber.
