»I’m interested in transformation« joseph beuys 1979d

Joseph Beuys's 100th birthday will celebrated with a parcours comprising 15 programme items in Düsseldorf and across NRW. The museums that have already opened their Beuys exhibition at this time will offer free admission to the relevant galleries.
The parcours opens with »Music from the Future«, a 24-hour musical homage to the artist, that will be performed on the piazza of K21. From 6 pm on 11 May to 6 pm on 12 May 24 musicians will honour Beuys as an artist who regarded music as an important component in his visual thinking and whose concept of expanded art significantly affected the course of music history.
The performance will be concluded at 6 pm on 12 May with the launch of »beuysradio«. Depending on the Covid-19 situation at that point in time, the launch will be celebrated either in the context of a party or online. Details will be announced on the website www.beuys2021.de and on the social media platforms of »beuys 2021« closer to the date.
