Hands vigorously pull scraps of paper from an antiquated printing press, while their owner remains invisible. Then Mimi Minus and a razor blade – the incident is still shocking, even sixty years after Buñuel's cut into the pupil of an eye, or the brutal shaving of Joan of Arc. The shrouded head, wrapped in muslin, reappears, and black paint is daubed over the top... No image retains its integrity, for each is crossed through, painted, double-exposed, spilt. (Stephan Settele)
