Nitsch (* Vienna 1938) is an Austrian performance artist considered one of the leading exponents of Viennese Actionism (Wiener Aktionismus). He graduated as an advertising graphic designer and worked first at the Technisches Museum in Vienna. A few years later his first ideas on pictorial action and on the Orgien-Mysterien-Theater (the Theater of the Orgies and the Mysteries) are born, which will follow him as a guiding thread for the rest of his artistic development.
