Raphael Montañez Ortiz's films are pretty destructive found-footage afairs.
"Golf" uses hole punches. "Cowboy and 'Indian' Film" and "Newsreel" subject
found footage to random recutting "with a tomahawk (per Ortiz's description,
although one suspects a proper splicer was used). All those films date from
the late 1950s.
Berlin (for now)
