BEUYS ON FILM

Joseph Beuys (1921–1986)—the first German artist to merit a solo show at the Guggenheim—was loved, reviled, collected, and trashed. Indeed, this master of felt, fat, and activism expanded the definition of art in the twentieth century—and the role of the artist in contemporary society. Beuys embraced it all: sculpture, performance art, photography, graphic design, shamanism, and politics. (As a pacifist-environmentalist, he co-founded the Student Party and the Green Party in Germany.)

This weekend in Hollywood, as part of the Goethe Institut’s German Current Los Angeles film festival, writer and director Andres Veiel will present his new documentary BEUYS, in its American premiere.

 

BEUYS, Saturday, October 14, at 5 pm.

EGYPTIAN THEATRE, 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles.
