First time exhibited in the UK, Bastian presents 5 sculptures by Joseph Beuys from the 1950s with documentary photographs, offering a rare opportunity to approach the early works of Beuys.
Influenced by shamanism, psychological processes and archetypal early-Christian motifs, Beuys’ artistic language based on his comprehension of the inner logic of mythology. The exhibition bears witness to the artist’s constant use of mythical references to understand an old spiritual world and its role in modern life.
