Kurt Kren´s Action films are the most tangible way of comprehending the nature of Actionist works of art and events today.

I think I disagree with Mr. Klocker's thesis about Kren's films and their relationship to Actionist works of art. These films are not documentaries or even essays on the nature of Actionist work. They are experiments in film making using Actionist performance as raw material. They are pungent and resonant.
