Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


Issue 31 offers new perspectives on the work of Joseph Beuys and his engagement with European history, mythology and geopolitics during the 1970s and 1980s. Subjects covered include the work he made in response to a devastating earthquake in Italy in 1980; the legacies of his counter-educational Free International University; Beuys’s interest in the notion of Eurasia; his collaboration with Danish composer Henning Christiansen; and his involvement in the exhibition Strategy: Get Arts, held in Edinburgh in 1970. Issue 32 includes two papers on the work of Joseph Beuys, one on Beuys at the ICA in 1974, the other on Beuys and Nietzsche, extending the grouping devoted to the German artist published in Tate Papers no.31.
