Product Description
Joseph Beuys's work continues to influence and inspire artists and thinkers around the world--in areas from organizational learning, direct democracy, and new forms of money, to new methods of art education and the practice of "ecological art."

Volker Harlan--a close colleague of Beuys--whose own work also explores substance and sacrament--talked with Beuys about the deeper motivations and insights behind "social sculpture" and his expanded view of art. These profound reflections, complemented by Harlan's thoughtful essays, give a sense of the interconnected nature of all life forms and provide the basis for a path toward a future that is ecologically sustainable.

Qhat is Art? features more than forty illustrations.

"I know that from him [Rudolf Steiner] a mission was given to me to gradually remove people's alienation and mistrust toward the supersensible through my means. In political thinking--the field I have to be working on daily--it is a matter of realizing the Threefold Social Order as quickly as possible." --Joseph Beuys, in a letter to Manfred Schradi, October 21, 1971
