from the cover:
"the three authors of this book deal with one of the most versatile and controversial figure of the contemporary art scene. Joseph Beuys belonges to the outstanding appearances of the modern art world. You cannot claim to understand this scene in their basics if you do not take Beuys contribution into consideration. His contribution is complex and the individual parts of his work is often very differently perceived. The authors show how the different and often contratictary perceived work and statements from Joseph Beuys converge into a concluded and consistent vision.
A large amount of partly not published drawings, sculptures and action photographs will help you to get an idea from his work. The ones who are familiar with the oeuvre from Joseph Beuys can discover new material in this book."
