Book Review
Joseph Beuys (1921-1986), who reached cult status in his native Germany, was perhaps the most important artist to emerge in Europe after WW II; he was certainly the most influential thinker and teacher among artists of the postwar generation. His doctrine was that "every man is an artist," and his more radical aims included a restructuring of the economy and free access to all educational institutions. Beuys considered art a medium for social and political change, and the prosaic materials he employed--felt, animal fat, and wax were among his favorites--had a spiritual dimension and could be invested by the artist with healing power. His iconic "felt suit," for instance, expresses the idea of physical warmth. Arranged chronologically and spanning four decades, this is the only book that provides a...

Book Description
The book highlights a selection of the important avant-garde artist’s posters and includes a catalog of his entire oeuvre in the field. Arguably the most important German artist to emerge in Europe after WW II, Joseph Beuys was certainly the most influential thinker and teacher among artists of his generation. His dictum, "Everyone is an artist" belied a singular talent for merging media and ideas. Beuys’ earliest posters were intended to announce exhibitions of his own work, while his later ones expressed his political convictions, such as those for Germany’s Green Party, of which he was a founder. No other segment of Beuys’ oeuvre expresses his heartfelt beliefs as incisively as do these works, which embody a school of graphic design that was wholly his own.

Book Description
"I know that from him [Rudolf Steiner] a mission was given to me to gradually remove people’s alienation and mistrust toward the supersensible through my means. In political thinking—the field I have to be working on daily—it is a matter of realizing the Threefold Social Order as quickly as possible." —Joseph Beuys, in a letter to Manfred Schradi, October 21, 1971 Joseph Beuys’s work continues to influence and inspire artists and thinkers around the world—in areas from organizational learning, direct democracy, and new forms of money, to new methods of art education and the practice of "ecological art." Volker Harlan—a close colleague of Beuys—whose own work also explores substance and sacrament—talked with Beuys about the deeper motivations and insights behind "social...

March 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This is the first publication to explore the extensive activities of German artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) in Britain and Ireland. Sean Rainbird returns to primary sources and retraces Beuys's footsteps, examining the rich body of exhibitions, lectures, and actions that grew out of the strong friendships and creative relationships that encouraged the artist to return so often to the British Isles.

Beuys's interest in Celtic myths and artifacts is fully explored, as well as his creative engagement with the linguistic legacy of James Joyce, his concern for Ireland, one of Europe's most troubled conflicts, and his attempt to set up in Dublin his Free International University for Disciplinary Research as a vehicle for social change and creative exploration. This book provides a new perspective on one of the 20th...

Book Description
Joseph Beuys (1921–1986)—a German sculptor and performance artist--became one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary art. His charismatic presence, extraordinary life, and unconventional artistic style (incorporating ritualized movement and sound, and materials such as fat, felt, earth, honey, blood, and even dead animals) gained him international notoriety during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Beuys’s innovative influence is particularly felt in the field of sculpture, whose definition he expanded to encompass performance art, vitrine cases, and site-specific environments.

This beautifully illustrated book investigates Beuys’s sculpture, arguably the most fundamental portion of his artistic work, as well as his extraordinary influence. Featured objects include a stunning...
