A document of Ulay’s theft from the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin of Hitler’s favourite painting, Carl Spitzeg's The Poor Poet, in 1976, this was Ulay’s final solo work before partnering with Marina Abramovic. A staged theft, Ulay had gone into the museum beforehand and propped open a security exit door, to enable himself a quick getaway! Eventually Ulay made his way to the house of a Turkish immigrant in a poor neighbourhood in Berlin, where he installed the painting. The resulting photographs and video that document the performance offer a wonderful overview of the action.
