A political activist and philosopher, Beuys believed in the social function of art.

A childhood interest in the natural sciences provided the themes that Beuys would spend his career exploring. Created using felt, fat and copper depicting stags, bees and hares, his work includes sculpture, performance, installation and drawing.
