History of art & design styles: from c 1900 -; Non-graphic art forms; Individual artists, art monographs
From 1945 to 1985, Joseph Beuys produced a body of work which was the subject of much critical discussion during his own lifetime. Arranged chronologically, this overview draws on selected works produced during this 40-year period and includes drawings and watercolours, sculptures and objects, environments and performances. Alain Borer takes in nature and people, material and form, chaos and reason and addresses the transformation of his work from early imaginary worlds into ever more fluent and unlimited artistic forms.
