Beuys

Anything can be art! The film about Joseph Beuys gives the floor to the artist himself in a mosaic of archive footage. The film here has its international premiere after being in the main competition in Berlin.

Joseph Beuys was so far ahead of his time that the art world has not caught up with him 30 years after his death. Everything can be art, Beuys said, and acted accordingly. With fat and felt as the constant materials of his sculptures and interventions, Beuys's aim was nonetheless to expand the concept of art as far as possible – and to involve as many people as he could in the process. A generous ideal with a radical, political dimension, which earned him dedicated followers and great resistance. In New York, the art world welcomed the German eccentric with a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim museum, but in Germany the opinions were split – also when Beuys embarked on a political career and was instrumental in establishing the Green Party. The film about the slim man with the hat gives the floor to Beuys himself, in a rich mosaic of priceless archive footage shot during his many actions, performances and public appearances – but also when talk turns to his past as a pilot who was shot down during the war. 'Beuys' premiered in competition in Berlin.
