During the Antwerp Art Weekend (13-16 May 2021), the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp organises a short but powerful tribute to the German artist Joseph Beuys, who would have turned 100 years old on 12 May 2021.
Centraal staan de rol van Beuys als kunstenaar-pedagoog en ecologisch activist, posities die hem vandaag uiterst relevant maken.
The homage is an initiative of the ArchiVolt research group and includes a lecture and a discussion evening. In addition, we present unique Beuys documents from the private archive of Louwrien Wijers, who collaborated with the artist, and an extensive overview of historical Beuys publications from the Collection for Research on Artists' Publications.
