Art & Cinema Series: Beuys
Filmmakers have always been interested in artists - not only in their works, but also their stories. Throughout this season, Warehouse421 will showcase a series of films about the lives of artists, presented in collaboration with Goethe-Institut, the globally-based German cultural association.
Directed by Andres Veiel
Documentary | German (with English subtitles) | 107 minutes
Very few 20th-century German artists and creatives were as controversial as Joseph Beuys (1921 to 1986) - a performance artist, sculptor, graphic artist, art theorist and occasionally, a professor.
Andres Veiel’s documentary embarks upon an extensive search for clues, unearthing a host of unknown archive material and interviewing creative contemporaries such as Klaus Staeck. What emerges is a collage of visual and audio content that provides viewers access to Beuys' complex work.
