Beuys

Beuys

Director Andres Veiel is based on current interviews Beuys which bear the name but not the function or relationship of the interviewee with the artist, which leaves us with even more questions, but through them we get to know the libertarian philosophy behind his work , placing it in a sociopolitical framework.

Beuys wanted to put an end to the idea of ​​art as an isolated practice, and he wanted to broaden the concept, considering that every human being is an artist, and therefore “only art makes life possible”. The documentary, although made 30 years after his death, shows how contemporary his message is, and how visionary it was at the time.

More than the interviews, the most valid is the historical material collected, where we can see the artist in action. “I Like America and Anerica Likes Me”, made in 1974, shows his arrival in the United States, which is limited to a confinement with a coyote, a cloth and a cane, a kind of protest against colonialism and capitalism.

We see him making another important work called “Fat Corners”, and the famous “7000 Oaks” considered one of the most important works of the 20th century. We also see him giving interviews and doing political activism with the Green Party during the 1980s.
