Film & Talk: Beuys
Part of The Artist’s Lens, a new documentary series on artists, co-presented with Hamptons Doc Fest.
Thirty years after his death, Joseph Beuys is still widely considered one of the most influential artists of his generation. Known for his contributions to the Fluxus movement and his work across diverse media, Beuys’ expanded concept of the role of the artist places him in the middle of socially relevant discourses on media, community, and capitalism.
Using previously untapped visual and audio sources, the documentary is an in-depth look at the life and art of visionary artist Joseph Beuys and the way he has impacted the world.
