When the European Fluxus group disbanded in 1964 after two eventful years, Tomas Schmit (1943-2006), who had participated in the group’s actions as a performer, gradually withdrew from performing. From 1966 he devoted himself primarily to writing and drawing. But the idea of the stage as a place where an action is performed in front of and with an audience did not disappear from his art. From then on, Schmit staged “the performance of drawing” on paper. The close interlocking of performance and drawing practice that characterizes Schmit’s entire oeuvre will be brought into focus for the first time in the exhibition of the Kupferstichkabinett, which will take place in the fall of 2021, and in the accompanying catalog. At the same time, the project reflects the manifold spectrum of Schmit’s nearly 40 years of comprehensive drawing and language art.
