This paper focuses on the question of how Schlingensief in his artistic practice addresses the works and personalities of the historical avant garde and especially of the neo-avant garde movements of the mid twentieth century in Europe and the U.S.A. As a case study, a scene from his theatrical work ATTA ATTA – Art has broken out, performed at the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin in 2003, is examined. Here, Schlingensief stages the question of how artistic precursors may be invoked. The thesis of the paper is that his way of addressing the avant gardes, and of addressing art history in general in artistic practice, is to work with the tension between history, performativity and emergence.
