100 years of Joseph Beuys! This is something to celebrate, and so ImPulsTanz and the MQ, initiated by the artist Akemi Takeya, are setting out on something like a search for traces - fast, fragmentary and daring. Beuys as a root system, Beuys as an assemblage, or perhaps also: How do we blast cracks and furrows into the monument, from which something new may emerge...
Happy Birthday Mr. Beuys! is a collection of short contributions, born out of the freedom and diversity of the artistic languages of the invited artists – a Birthday Present, an ephemeral gift, a controversial party, a tribute to live art and presence. Whether homage, parody, plagiarism, protest, provocation ... – everything is welcome.
The project was initiated by Akemi Takeya.
Duration: 105 Minutes
The event will take place in all weathers.
