German sculptor, performance artist, and key member of the Fluxus movement, Joseph Beuys was the man with the hat, the felt and the fat corner. Three decades after his death, he appears to us as a visionary who was ahead of his time. Patiently he tried to explain, even then, that “money must not be a commodity”. He knew that the money market would undermine democracy. But more than that, Beuys’ expanded concept of art took him right to the heart of today’s relevant social debates.
