Viennese Actionism was one of the strongest effort of the 1960's to develop contemporary art and a forerunner of what is now widely known as Performance Art. Danièle Roussel interviewed not only the former actionists (Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, Günter Brus, Rudolf Schwarzkogler) but also some journalists, politicians, historians and witnesses of that time.
