Action Trash

The most important material used by HA Schult for his attacks against an impassive, and waning cultural institution is garbage. Garbage used as a material of refusal and provocation. Armin Zweite, 1974

If I were an artist educator, I would go with young people and walk the garbage heaps of industrialized civilization, because by destroying this order one breaks through its facade. Robert Jungk, 1973

HA Schult’s art is like a heavily loaded vaccination injection whose effects have not missed the mark regarding society’s awareness. Eberhard Roters, 1973

More and more artists are using trash not just as a material but also as a subject. Kim Levin, 2011
