Beuys. We are the Revolution / Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum fr Gegenwart, Berlin

November 13, 2008

The “Cult of the Artist” is the major theme of the current exhibitions of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin): the artist as the core mythical figure of the Western world. While the New National Gallery celebrates Paul Klee and Jeff Koons, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum fr Gegenwart turns the spotlight on Joseph Beuys (1921-1986), one of the most charismatic and controversial figures of the world of art. Twenty years after the last major exhibition of Joseph Beuys’ in Germany, the exhibition shows key works and various documents, writings, films and photographs.
