Beuys -German Movie

Hardly any other German cultural artist of the 20th century was as controversial as the action artist, sculptor, draftsman, art theorist and temporary Professor Joseph Beuys (1921-1986). His work dealt with a new, expanded concept of art, which also included the political shaping of society. Andres Veiel goes with his documentary on an extensive search for clues; he brings to light an abundance of partly unknown archive material and allows contemporary witnesses such as Klaus Staeck to speak. All in all, a collage of image and sound documents is created that gives all viewers access to the complex work of Beuys.
