From the Portfolio of Doggedness (German: Aus der Mappe der Hundigkeit) is a 1968/1969 "Aktion" by Valie Export and Peter Weibel. In this performance, Valie Export leads Peter Weibel on a leash through Vienna like a dog.


Three women lead a man moving as a dog on all fours through central Tallinn during the rush hour. This remake action is based on the Valie Export's 1968/1969 action Aus der Mappe der Hundigkeit.
