Abstract (English)

"This fascinating tape documents a discussion between Beuys and the audience at Cooper Union in New York, following his 1980 exhibition at the guggenheim Museum. Salient questions from a packed house drive a conversation in which Beuys outlines his theories of art's socio-political possibilities and addresses the notion of the artist as a sensational or enigmatic figure. In this engaging dialogue, Bueys participates in an impromptu performance with an audience member and cites Jackson Pollock and Elvis Presley as his American influences." -- Videocassette case.
