Description: 
en announces a performance. He looks silently at the audience for 2 minutes. Then he takes off his jacket, rolls up his sleeves, and, accompanied by music from the western Ringo or For a Few Dollars More, he rushes at the audience, hitting them hard with a rod. This action, done for the first time in Nice, was repeated in 1971 at the Galerie Bischifberger in Zurich.
