Joseph Beuys was one of the most influential artists of the late 20th century, a political activist and philosopher who believed in the social function of art.

Joseph Beuys, Joseph Beuys als Titelbild de Wirtschaftswoche, 1976

A childhood interest in the natural sciences provided the themes that Beuys would spend his career exploring, across a vast body of work ranging from drawing to performance. Here works crafted from felt, fat and copper depicting stags, bees and hares betray the preoccupations of this idosyncratic artist.
