German Performance Artist Joseph Beuys in Fundación PROA


Starting March 15th and until June 2014, Fundación Proa presents a comprehensive retrospective of the lifework of German artist Joseph Beuys (Krefeld, 1921 – Düsseldorf, 1986) in Argentina.

Joseph Beuys opens the 2014 season with a vast exhibition presenting the artist’s esthetic and performance universe, considered as one of the 20th century’s most radical artistic creators. The exhibit includes art pieces from the 1955-1985 period, presenting a large outlook over 110 pieces. Due to his extensive and complex life production, Joseph Beuys includes objects, paintings, drawings, sculptures, instalations, videos and performances.

Joseph Beuys and Argentine artist Nicolás García Uriburu collaborated for the Documenta 7 (1982), where they planted 7 thousand oaks next to basalt blocks, in order to express their support for ecology and nature, and to state that to achieve real change, action must follow words every time.
