Wavelength – Destruction in Art part 6 with Gustav Metzger

Latest instalment in Auto-Destructive Art: Gustav Metzger in conversation with Mathieu Copeland, Clive Phillpot and myself. “Gustav Metzger was born in Nuremberg in 1926 and came to Britain in 1939 as a Polish citizen, but since the late forties has been stateless. During his involvement with the anti-nuclear campaign, he continued to develop Auto-Destructive Art and its subsequent manifestations in the 60s and 70s. Now thirty years on, Metzger still feels the need to address issues that put the human race on the edge of a precipice”. (Gustav Metzger ‘damaged nature, auto-destructive art’).
