Abstract line drawing poster by Joseph Beuys.
Joseph Beuys was one of the most influential artists of the late 20th Century. He was a German artist most famous for his sculptures and performance art. Recognized for his avant-garde and political approach to art, Beuys' work has been exhibited across Europe and America, with retrospectives in museums like the Guggenheim and Tate Modern. After serving inn the airforce in World War II, Beuys returned to art school and became involved with the Fluxus art group during the 60's. This group of radical artists wanted to expand the definition of art, believing art should be created with the intention of transforming the world socially and politically.
This vintage poster is an advertisement for one of Beuys' exhibits at the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig, Germany. The exhibit was for Beuys' handzeichnungen (drawings), and pictured on the poster is one such of his abstract drawings.
