Thirty years after his death, Joseph Beuys, known worldwide as the man with the hat, the felt and the “Fettecke,” is remembered as a visionary artist. Though his work was once derided in Germany as “the most expensive trash of all time,” Beuys became the first German artist to have a solo exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Comprised of previously unpublished audio and visual material, this Golden Bear-nominated documentary creates an intimate portrait of the artist that opens up spaces for ideas and discussion. Capturing the film’s subject as he boxes, chats, lectures and explains art to a dead hare, Veiel also presents Beuys as a family man, teacher and Green Party candidate, whose contradictions and tensions inspired an expanded concept of art that feeds directly into today’s social, political and moral debates.
