Joseph Beuys

Sculpture and Drawing

Opening on February 1, 2007, Zwirner & Wirth will present a selection of important sculptures and drawings by Joseph Beuys. The works on view, which date from 1953 to 1984, span the artist's uniquely influential career. 

Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) is considered one of the most important German artists of the 20th Century. His innovative experiments with materials and genres radically expanded the possibilities of art-making, thus influencing successive generations of artists. Beuys's practice was multi-faceted, incorporating drawings, installations, performances, and even political activism into a unique body of work which promoted a mutable, new kind of art that encouraged individual and social transformation.
