Joseph Beuys: DrawingsJoseph Beuys: Drawings

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Heiner Bastian. Foreword by Poul Erik Tøjner, et al. Text by Heiner Bastian, Aeneas Bastian.

This publication assembles a superb selection of some 200 drawings, watercolors and collages by Joseph Beuys (1921–1986) that has not been made public for more than a quarter of a century. Beuys’ drawings have a special status within his oeuvre, and have been cited by several generations of artists as decisive and influential. These works coined a new idiom in drawing, whose signature features include a deliberate or apparent clumsiness, the use of unorthodox substances such as hare’s blood and rust that seeps deeply into the paper weave, diagrammatic imagery and the use of graph paper. Collage elements (felt, newspaper) further heighten the intense materiality of these works, which is in turn offset by handwritten and typed notes on various projects--embryonic thoughts that add a provisional, processual dimension. This substantial volume documents a milestone oeuvre in twentieth-century drawing.

Joseph Beuys: Every Man Is an ArtistJoseph Beuys: Every Man Is an Artist

Posters, Multiples and Videos

Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Text by Antonio d'Avossa, Nicoletta Ossanna Cavadini, Rainner Rappmann.

Every Man Is an Artist investigates Joseph Beuys’ (1921–1986) voluminous output of multiples. For Beuys, multiples were a vehicle for communication, discussion and debate--a means for disseminating his philosophy beyond a collector audience and putting broader progressive ideas into circulation. From 1965 to 1985, Beuys produced almost 600 multiples in a variety of media, many of which incorporated felt (his signature material), and including graphic works, found objects, photographs, audiotapes and films. While other artists focused on creating games or do-it-yourself performances, Beuys’ pieces generally function as didactic tokens of a larger spiritual agenda, such as a set of wooden boxes in which people may store their thoughts. With a wealth of reproductions (120 in color), this volume offers a concise overview of Beuys’ politicization of aesthetics and the distribution of art.

Joseph Beuys: Sculpture and DrawingJoseph Beuys: Sculpture and Drawing

Published by Zwirner & Wirth.
Edited by Kristine Bell, Greg Lulay, Alexandra Whitney. Text by Alexandra Whitney, Mark Rosenthal.

Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) is widely considered one of the most important German artists of the twentieth century. His innovative experiments with materials and genres radically expanded the possibilities of art-making, thus influencing successive generations of artists. Beuys' practice was multi-faceted, incorporating drawings, installations, performances and even political activism into a unique body of work which promoted a mutable, new kind of art that encouraged individual and social transformation. The works in this exhibition catalogue, which include more than a dozen drawings and six sculptures made between 1953 and 1984, exemplify Beuys' unusual fusion of ideology and myth with formal invention.

Joseph Beuys: In the Mu Mok CollectionJoseph Beuys: In the Mu Mok Collection

Published by Verlag Fur Moderne Kunst Nurnberg.
Text by Wolfgang Dreschsler, Doris Leutgeb.

This sampler explores three Joseph Beuys works in three media: the collection of drawings, Kölner Mappe or Cologne Portfolio; the sculptural object "Tür," or "Door;" and an environment, "Basisraum Nasse Wäsche," literally "Basic Room Wet Laundry." The Cologne Portfolio is an unusually broad, privately assembled group of 64 Beuys drawings made between 1945 and 1973, put together by a Cologne collector and later brought to Vienna's Museum of Modern Art. "Tür," 1954-56, is a burnt door to which Beuys applied a heron's skull and a rabbit pelt. The installation piece, "Basisraum Nasse Wäsche," was created in 1979 for two Viennese exhibitions, and has traveled to several venues over the years. Photo documentation of its various presentations shows how very much each exhibition space has impacted this important Beuys environment.

Joseph Beuys: The MultiplesJoseph Beuys: The Multiples

Published by Edition Schellmann.
Edited by Jàrg Schellmann. Essays by Dierk Stemmler, Joan Rothfuss, Jàrg Schellmann and Peter Nisbet. Afterword by James Cuno and Kathy Halbreich.

Out of print since 1999, the classic catalogue raisonnª of Joseph Beuys's multiples is available again at last. Beuys, the most influential German--and perhaps the most influential European--artist of the postwar period, was born in 1921. He had planned to be a doctor, but following World War II he enrolled in the Dsseldorf Academy of Art. As a professor there in the early 1960s he encountered the influence of Fluxus and began to make and show the multiples--prints and boxes and other objects in editions--that became such a key part of his work. Those highlighted here include sleds, pieces of felt, signed head shots of the artist and texts calligraphed onto bank notes in francs, marks and schillings. Bruno Cora Tea mocks both mass production and boutique cachet by refilling a Coca-Cola bottle with tea, resealing it with flourishes worthy of a Belgian beer, and putting the whole thing in a glass-fronted box. Joseph Beuys: Multiples includes some 600 pieces, annotated lists of the major collections where they can be found, essays from significant curators and scholars and an interview with the artist.

Rodin & BeuysRodin & Beuys

Published by Richter Verlag.
Edited by Pamela Kort and Max Hollein. Essays by Claude Keisch, Helene Pinet, Josephine Gabler and Dieter Koepplin.

Between 1947 and 1964 Joseph Beuys produced a swath of works on paper that, in their style, technique, and formal vocabulary, echo those of Auguste Rodin by way of his teacher and mentor, sculptor, Wilhelm Lehmbruck. Although Beuys's work remains very different from his predecessors', it does take up themes they had pursued, including the idea of the torso as an autonomous, enclosed form and of the fragment as the simplest and most elementary embodiment of immutability. This book sets Beuys's works on paper and sculptures opposite the works on paper and sculptures of Rodin and Lehmbruck, and finds both striking affinities and autonomy.

Joseph Beuys: Honey Is Flowing In All Directions

Published by Steidl.
Artwork by Joseph Beuys. Photographs by Klaus Staeck. Contributions by Gerhard Steidl.

On January 9th, 1974, Joseph Beuys travelled to America for the very first time in his life. His trip was meticulously planned, with an art/performance scheduled in between each airplane, taxi and hotel, at prominent universities and galleries. Each venture in the New World was documented in these photographs. Single shots, sequences and photo-novels were produced, in addition to film stills and the movies Dillinger and The Dead Eyes of London. Beuys himself put together the layout for this book just before he died in October 1985. This unique travel report, which lay unpublished for over 20 years, is now presented in the exact format intended by Beuys.

Artwork by Joseph Beuys.

This beautifully produced book documents an extraordinary chapter in Joseph Beuys' life and work: his artistic and poetic experience during a stay in the Seychelles toward the end of his life. Included here are an account of Beuys' own writings during this important period and a variety of related objects, some of them never previously exhibited: artwork, documents, manuscripts and souvenirs. Together they form a unique “diary” reflecting Beuys' mature belief about the relationship of art, nature and modern culture.

Joseph Beuys: ArenaJoseph Beuys: Arena

Where would I have got if I had been intelligent!

Published by DIA ART FOUNDATION.
Artwork by Joseph Beuys. Text by Pamela Kort, Christopher Phillips.

Arena is a major but rarely exhibited Beuys work that consists of 100 panels containing several hundred photographs of Beuys, spanning the artist's career from the late 40s to 1972. Realized in 1973, "Arena" attains a monumental scale and the sort of grand design appropriate to an artistic summa; as such, the project amounts to a broad portrait of Beuys' artistic persona. It is here documented for the first time.

Joseph Beuys: What Is Money?Joseph Beuys: What Is Money?

Published by Clairview Books.

'If we want to achieve a different society where the principle of money operates equitably, if we want to abolish the power money has developed over people historically, and position money in relationship to freedom, equality and fraternity ...then we must elaborate a concept of culture and a concept of art where every person must be an artist...' - Joseph Beuys. The world of finance exerts a huge influence over our lives, being responsible for economic turmoil and seemingly interminable peaks and crashes. Whereas money was once a simple means of exchange, today it is a commodity in itself and as 'capital' exerts power over individuals, degrading work to tradable labour. Can we find a new way of understanding money today, so that we can begin to overcome its destructive aspects? In November 1984, a remarkable discussion took place at the Meeting House in Ulm, Germany. It featured the radical artist Joseph Beuys, two professors (of Financial Sciences and Political Economics) and a banker. Beuys would appear to be out of place among these heavyweight academics, professionals and authors. But rather than being intimidated by his fellow panellists, Beuys - also a social and political activist - demonstrates his groundbreaking thinking on the subject, and his ability to bring fresh perspectives. Here for the first time is a transcript of this debate, together with analysis by Ulrich Rosch, which will be of equal interest to artists, economists and spiritual seekers.

Joseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines, EnvironmentsJoseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines, Environments

Published by Yale.

Joseph Beuys (1921–1986)—a German sculptor and performance artist--became one of the most influential figures in modern and contemporary art. His charismatic presence, extraordinary life, and unconventional artistic style (incorporating ritualized movement and sound, and materials such as fat, felt, earth, honey, blood, and even dead animals) gained him international notoriety during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Beuys’s innovative influence is particularly felt in the field of sculpture, whose definition he expanded to encompass performance art, vitrine cases, and site-specific environments.

This beautifully illustrated book investigates Beuys’s sculpture, arguably the most fundamental portion of his artistic work, as well as his extraordinary influence. Featured objects include a stunning selection of Beuys’s remarkable vitrines—sly cousins of standard museum presentations, featuring both hand-made and found objects serving as “exhibitions” on Beuys’s own topics; blackboards on which he recorded his lectures and performances; room-sized environments; and many other sculptural projects that frequently served as physical documentation for Beuys’s performances.

With a comprehensive chronology of Beuys’s activities as an artist and activist, this book is essential for those interested in the life, work, and legacy of one of the art world’s most intriguing figures.

Joseph Beuys: The ReaderJoseph Beuys: The Reader

Published by MIT.

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 Bürger, 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. Claudia Mesch is Assistant Professor at the School of Art, Arizona State University. Viola Michely is a writer and curator and teaches art and philosophy at the August-Macke School, Bonn.
