Radical teaching, direct democracy and social sculpture - Joseph Beuys
This exhibition, as its title indicates, focuses on three separate but essential areas that provide insights into the political dimension of the work of Joseph Beuys . Firstly, his activity in the realm of art education, secondly, Beuys’s creation of agitprop and anti-establishment structures and institutions in which he was able to apply his political, artistic and pedagogical ideas and lastly, his concept of ‘social sculpture’ or of the artwork expanded beyond the ready-made of Duchamp and the Dadaists, beyond commoditised formalism.
