I'm with Beuys. Are you?

May 2021 sees the centenary of the birth of Joseph Beuys

This website draws attention to the ideas of Joseph Beuys - which still have great relevance to our current situation especially in areas such as education, the environment, economic models, social sculpture and art practice generally.

We aim to keep you informed of all the work that is being, and has been, done in his name and spirit - especially during 2021.

Please keep us informed of any events that you are planning.

Where are we?

Joseph Beuys was one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century. He widened the very concept of art by including 'invisible materials' such as thoughts, feelings, and actions as materials which require 'sculpting'. And, since everyone participates in this sculpting process, a process he called ‘social sculpture’, he maintained 'Everyone is an artist' and we all have the capacity to shape the world we inhabit for the better. But where are we on this path? Hopefully, this website will provide answers to this question.
