Beuys

(Andres Veiel, 2017)

“No one since Marcel Duchamp had so shaken up how we categorize art, and his legacy is crucial for an understanding of today’s scene, from Ai Weiwei to Marina Abramovic.”—Variety

Even 30 years after his death, the artist Joseph Beuys is remembered as a visionary far ahead of his time. Because so much of his work was performance based, his life was his greatest artwork, which makes this thoughtful documentary (comprised of much previously unseen material) so pleasurable to watch. Beuys’s ambitious goal was to transform Western culture into a more peaceful, democratic, and creative environment. This documentary provides a fascinating portrait of this still-radical provocateur’s attempt to achieve it. (107 mins., DCP)
