Joseph Beuys Art = Human

28 March—1 August 2021
Kunstmuseen Krefeld - Kaiser Wilhelm Museum

The Kaiser Wilhelm Museum is the only art institution in North Rhine-Westphalia with a sculptural ensemble by Joseph Beuys that has been preserved exactly as the artist himself installed it. With their permanently installed Beuys rooms still on display, Kunstmuseen Krefeld will launch their Beuys year with a display of works and documents by Beuys from their own holdings – at the heart of this presentation is the lecture  »Kunst = Mensch«, which Beuys delivered when the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum acquired a key work – his »Barraque d’dull odde«. Beuys later categorized that lecture as an action.
