Book Description:
Twentieth century artist Joseph Beuys (1921 1986) legendary and self mythologizing, enigmatic and controversial remains an important influence on artists today. Beuys embraced radically democratic artistic and political ideas, proclaiming 'Everyone is an artist,' and advocating direct democracy through referenda. He famously worked with such nontraditional materials as felt, fat, and plants and animals both alive and dead. Beuys and his work performance art, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation received perhaps the most contentious reception of any postwar artist. This reader brings together the crucial writings on Beuys and his work, presenting key essays by prominent artists and critics from North America and Europe. With a foreword by Arthur C. Danto, 'Style and Salvation in the Art of Beuys,' Benjamin H. D. Buchloh's now classic 1980 essay, 'Beuys, Twilight of the Idol,' and influential texts by Vera Frenkel, Thierry de Duve, Rosalind Krauss, Peter B rger, Irit Rogoff, and others, Joseph Beuys: The Reader is the most significant gathering of critical texts on this challenging artist that has ever been assembled. It will be essential reading for any student of Beuys and for all those interested in postwar art, the cult of the artist, and art's engagement with politics and society. Contributors: Joseph Beuys, Eugen Blume, Benjamin Buchloh, Peter B rger, Jean Fran ois Chevrier, Catherine David, Thierry de Duve, Vera Frenkel, Stefan Germer, Rosalind Krauss, Barbara Lange, Dirk Luckow, Claudia Mesch, Viola Michely, Irit Rogoff, Gregory Ulmer, Theodora Vischer, Antje von Graevenitz, and Dorothea Zwirner
