Joseph Beuys, the man with a hat, some felt, and the Fettecke. Thirty years after his death he still seems to be a visionary, way ahead of his time. Back then, he was trying to patently explain how “money shouldn't be a commodity.” He knew that monetary trade would undermine democracy. But there's more. Beuys stores his materials, lectures, and explains his art to a dead hare. His expanded concept of art places him at the forefront of socially relevant discourse, even today. A congenial montage of countless, previously untapped visual and audio sources, director Andreas Veiel and his team created a one-of-a-kind chronicle: Beuys is not a portrait in the common sense of the word, but an intimate look at a human being, his art, and his world of ideas.
