GOETHE-INSTITUT presents BEUYS (FST)

GOETHE-INSTITUT presents BEUYS (FST)
A look at the life, art and politics of influential, controversial German artist Joseph Beuys. Using previously unpublished audio and film footage, Andres Veiel creates an associative, loose portrait including personal aspects of Beuy’s childhood, his positions on art, film extracts of his art happenings and scenes of his early involvement in the Green party.

He wanted a revolution – and found it within his obscure juxtaposition of objects which occasionally provoked laughter. Revolutions need laughter, he proclaimed. He wanted to create art that people not only wanted to participate in, but art that people ‘must’ participate in. Sounds like a grand statement, but coming from him and the way he is depicted within Beuys, while watching, it seemed almost feasible.

“One of the most exciting documentaries of the last few years.”
