Opening 26.3.2021, 19h00 online:
We bring yesterday and today together for our future.
The German artist Joseph Beuys, who is important for sustainable art today, would have had his 100th birthday in May 2021. We live on his “social sculpture” in our project “Group Global 3000”. With the art exhibited there, its worldwide appeal, our togetherness and our ecological and economic practice, we want to stimulate the discourse for a sustainable world.
For Documenta 7, Joseph Beuys planted a total of 7,000 oak trees in Kassel between 1982 and 1987. Commenting on his ecological artwork “Art-Nature-Culture” planned for Hamburg during this time, Beuys said: “The destruction is there, has already progressed so far that it no longer seems repairable to many scientists.” Today, the Fridays For Future movement is pushing to take scientists seriously.
We see his sentence “Every human being is an artist” as empowering people to shape their future in a sustainable way. The power of J. Beuys can help us today to solve our global, existential climate crisis. It is his credibility, his green side, his political society-changing action art.
After this exhibition, we continue to call on artists to join his perspective and create works that address the climate crisis and the UN Sustainable Goals in the spirit of Beuys.
Hundreds of artists have responded to our worldwide call for entries to this exhibition.
As the corona crisis still requires restrictions, we will adjust the exhibition organisation and programme accordingly. The exhibition will be physically set up. Whether the events will take place physically in the gallery or online, you will see here on our site as soon as we have clarity about the lockdown. We are planning a digitally annotated video tour, an online gallery and dialogue video events.
