Joseph Beuys was born in Krefeld in 1921. After his assignment in World War I, he completed his studies as a master student with Ewald Mataré at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in 1951, where he held a professorship from 1961 until his dismissal in 1972. In dealing with humanism, social philosophy and the anthroposophical teachings of Rudolf Steiner, Joseph Beuys developed his “expanded concept of art” and the concept of “social sculpture”. His very extensive oeuvre is characterized by a subjective iconography, a mythically-magically connotated use of non-art materials such as grease and felt, and a multi-layered symbolic meaning. Beuys is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He died in Düsseldorf in 1986.
