hans emmerling and edwin k. braun’s film joseph beuys and his class shows beuys at work as a teacher with his class at the kunstakademie düsseldorf with the intention of documenting his influence as an artist, pedagogue and »promulgator of theories«. the students themselves also have their say. the result is a profound portrait that shows how difficult it is to translate beuys’ expanded concept of art into teaching practice.
