More About Joseph Beuys

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The German-born artist Joseph Beuys, who lived from 1921 to 1986, was a painter, sculptor and performance artist, as well as a professor at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. One of the most significant and influential artists of the twentieth century, he saw himself as the architect of a revolutionary type of poetry whose language arose from "poor" objects--from a strict reduction to the essential.

Joseph Beuys was born in 1921 and died in 1986.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beuys In America?

Healing the Western Mind  Jan 27, 2002
The artworks and political ideas of German artist Joseph Beuys are deeply discussed into this interesting book. In the 1960's, Joseph Beuys was an underground name in the American artworld, but his reputation preceeded him.  Beuys had controversial feelings towards the US. His first art project in the United States, the action I Like America and America Likes Me, took place at Block's gallery in 1974. For this performance, Beuys traveled to Manhattan wrapped in felt, and then spent a week with a coyote, engaging it in a number of ritualistic encounters. For the 1987-88 exhibition at Dia Center for the Arts (New York), Lynne Cooke wrote... "as he consolidated a philosophy aimed at a revolution in both mind and body through an art devised to effect social and political transformation, he increasingly engaged in public pedagogy, language itself becoming for him an aesthetic medium.
