100 Years Beuys

May 12, 2021 is the centenary of Joseph Beuys. He is considered one of the most influential artists in recent art history.

About two years ago, Stijn Coppejans took the initiative to prepare a program around 100 years of Beuys. This project has grown into a program with dozens of activities in Antwerp. In addition, many international links were forged during the preparations. The emphasis in all activities will be on the topical value of Beuys’ work.

The project is supported by various partners, including the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, the M HKA and dasKULTURforum Antwerp.
