“Beuys was among the greatest postwar artists; artists, that is, who grapple with the world that follows war”

Thirty years after his death, sculptor and performance artist Joseph Beuys remains a compelling and visionary figure in post-war art. Eschewing talking heads in favour of extensive archival footage, the film paints an expressionistic portrait of the life and politics of this seminal twentieth century artist.

Beuys is an immersive journey alongside the artist, through his work, his politics and his world of ideas.
