Joseph Beuys: Arena—where would I have got if I had been intelligent!

Consisting of one hundred panels containing several hundred photographs of Beuys, spanning the artist's career from the late 1940s to 1972, Arena—where would I have got if I had been intelligent! attains a monumental scale and the sort of grand design appropriate to an artistic summa; as such, the project amounts to a broad portrait of Beuys's artistic persona. It is here documented for the first time.

The work is fully illustrated in 102 full-page color plates and 45 black-and-white comparative photographs. Essays by Pamela Kort and Christopher Phillips. Interview with Lucio Amelio. Introduction by Lynne Cooke.
