Item description for Joseph Beuys: Leve Sieht Beuys: Block Beuys by Joseph Beuys & Manfred Leve...
Joseph Beuys created his Block Beuys installation in the 1960s out of greatly varied materials and salvaged items that were selected, manipulated, altered and brought together in unusual ways. The objects correspond to one another and, in their unmistakable forms, refer to the artist's work in its entirety. Block Beuys is installed in a series of seven interconnected rooms in the Hessisches Landesmuseum in Darmstadt. In Leve sieht Beuys, the photographer Manfred Leve has documented Block Beuys, not only in the variety of its individual pieces, but also with a view of the entire work of art. His black-and-white photos, devoid of any kind of staging, allow a thorough and genuine look at this radiant work.

More About Joseph Beuys & Manfred Leve
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.
