18/68 Venice Destroyed
18/68 Venecia kaputt
AT / 1968
4 min.

In 1968, Kren made Venecia kaputt, which lasts only six seconds, and utilizes scratching on film to erase an image of Venice.

(Malcolm Le Grice, "Abstract Film and Beyond", 1977)

Hans Scheugl: You used live images, which you then drew over.

Kren: There was already talk about Venice going down. And then there was this American war ship in the background. I had fun destroying that picture.

(Hans Scheugl: "Die Filme. Eine kommentierte Filmographie," in: (ed.) Scheugl Ex Underground Kurt Kren. Seine Filme, Vienna 1996)
