Why did Joseph Beuys carry out his action ‘EURASIENSTAB’ in Vienna?
Should ‘7000 Oaks’ also have been planted here? And why should wet laundry constantly hang in Palais Liechtenstein?
Joseph Beuys’ relationships to the Austrian capital, the actions he carried out here, the spatial installations he set up, exhibitions, lectures, and discussion groups are investigated in the current publication on the pioneering artist’s 100th birthday.
With the expanded concept of art, Beuys not only significantly shaped the art after 1945; his oeuvre also has an unwavering relevance today.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Belvedere 21, Vienna (2021).
