Ha Schult is a German installation, happening and conceptual artist known primarily for his object and performance art. Schult, calls himself a “doer,” in that his interest is centered only on the non-repeatable process of doing, for Schult, art is life. Incorporating the car in many of his performances, Schult sees it both as a mechanism designed to protect as well as one to cause great harm. It can be used as a means to escape the world as well as an instrument to conquer it.
