Jürgen Klaukes Langeweile. Zu Jürgen Klaukes Fotoarbeit "Formalisierung der Langeweile" 1980/81

Schmitt’s video Jürgen Klaukes Langeweile refers to Formalisierung der Langeweile, a photographic work by this important German photographer, performance and media artist. Fragments of performance documentation and conversations in bars and clubs with protagonists of the Cologne art world from the early 1980s, but also reactions of passersby to actions undertaken in public provide insight into the Klauke’s radical oeuvre, which anticipated body art and queer.
