Chris Reinecke: Firemouse

During a museum visit in the early 1970s, LIDL-artist Chris Reinecke was suspected of wanting to set the building on fire. As usual, she carried cod liver oil, a vitamin supplement, and they thought it was petrol! After the R.A.F., there was distrust of engaged art. Reinecke captures, perhaps better than any other person of the period, the ethical dilemma of an individual torn between art and activism.
