Auto-destructive art is an invented term used to describe artworks which were destroyed during the process of their creation. Gustaz Metzger clarified his key principles: The work must return to nothingness within 20 years-time, it must be self-completing and include public participation.
Décollage is the technique of removing, cutting, or tearing away sections of an original image. The French word means to take off, become unstuck or become unglued. Artists who use this technique may use art to symbolically replace values or tear thinking from media influence.
