Kren´s last film to include any direct reference to Otto Muehl is 12/ 66 Cosinus Alpha, a 10-minute film that completes a cycle of elaborate sensual montages and materials.

(Stephen Dwoskin)

I had already quit making films of actions, in addition the actionists were making their own films. But I also took photographs at small Brus actions. But Mühl then talked me into filming an action. There were five rolls of film with 30 meters each. And when I was thinking about how I was going to edit it, it suddenly turned out that some Turks wanted to buy the film. I didn’t cut very much out as I normally did, and for that reason it’s probably a few seconds too long. You have to remember that we were always extremely short of money and didn’t know how we were going to continue working. Then the Turks didn’t buy the film at all, they said it was too dirty for them.
