john halpern's film accompanies joseph beuys in 1979 as he sets up his solo exhibition at the guggenheim museum in new york. beuys describes his work methods, his concept of art and the exhibition installation in a series of interviews. the film thus offers a deep insight into beuys’s artistic oeuvre and directly relates the individual works to the statements made in the interviews: a successful cinematic mediation of abstract ideas and concrete works.
