Item description for Das Ende Des 20. Jahrhunderts/The End of the 20th Century by Susanne Willisch Joseph Beuys...

In 1984 Joseph Beuys assembled his monumental The End of the 20th Century in Haus der Kunst in Munich: 44 basalt blocks with conical sections drilled out of them, the resulting "stoppers" slotted back into place using a bed of felt and clay. He arranged the blocks to create an animated vibrant formation that charged the entire room with meaning. The relocation of the work to the new Munich Pinakothek der Moderne set an almost impossible challenge for conservators, not least owing to the fiery debate whether an aeuvre an artist had himself laid out could be touched in the first place. But in the end, they succeeded: a key late 20th-century artwork was given a new location and none of its suggestive powers had been forfeited in the process.

In this volume art historians, Beuys specialists, restorers, geologists, a surveyor, and a philosopher all shed light on Beuys' spatial sculpture, its gene-sis, its exhibition history, and its re-installation.
