Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) was one of the most original and influential artists of the twentieth century. Challenging the traditional confines of art, he embraced a broader, philosophically and politically based practice formulated in the dictum "Everyone is an artist." His unique approach to the creative process transformed materials such as felt, fat, honey, blood, wax, copper, and sulfur into fluent and expressive artistic media. Called the most olfactory artist in history, he preferred the smells of the pungent and decaying, just as he favored the indecent, ugly, and disfigured over the polished, shiny, tasteful products of city slickers and social seekers. His long-term radical aims included the introduction of direct democracy through referendum, free access to all educational institutions, and a restructuring of the economy based on ecological necessity.

"Joseph Beuys (1921-86) - the 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 fame and notoriety from the 1960s through the 1980s. 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." "With a comprehensive chronology of Beuys's activities as an artist and activist, this book is essential for those interested in the life, work, and legacy of one of the art world's most intriguing figures."--BOOK JACKET.

"From the beginning of the Sixties until his death, Joseph Beuys (Krefeld, Germany, 1921 - Dusseldorf, 1986) dominated the contemporary avant-garde art scene. After participating in the Fluxus group's first exhibitions, he channeled his efforts into performance and political, social, and ecological projects. He founded cultural movements such as the Union for the New Democracy and the Free International University. Many of his conceptual propositions are memorable through their slogans: "All Men are Artists", "Kunst = Kapital", "We are the Revolution", "Defense of Nature."" "A participant in the most prestigious international exhibitions, from Kassel's "Documenta" to the Venice Biennial, Beuys also has important retrospective in 1979 at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The artist's works are exhibited in the world's major museums." "The anti-traditionalist ideas of Beuysian art aim to renew and improve the manner in which man lives. The German master's prophetic beliefs establish him as an emblematic figure as one of the forerunners in the post-war art world."--BOOK JACKET.

"Next to Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Auguste Rodin was among the sculptors that Joseph Beuys, up to his death in 1986, most highly prized. Beuys became aware of the great sculptor as early as 1950 when he read the monograph by Rainer Maria Rilke on Rodin's work, which provided him with crucial aesthetic impulses. Beuys' early drawings show thematic and conceptual connections to Rodin's watercolors and drawings. For instance, both artists refer back to ancient mythology, e.g., in their female figures, which they paint on paper in coats of glaze. But also the lines of tradition that Auguste Rodin passed on by way of Wilhelm Lehmbruck were taken up by Beuys, such as his interest in the artistic possibilities of the torso." "The complex relation to the work of Auguste Rodin can be followed in the book's comprehensive section showing works by Rodin, Lehmbruck and Beuys."--BOOK JACKET.
