»I’m a pretty fierce hare«

who was, who is joseph beuys? What makes him so controversial? Is he still relevant, still pertinent? In the art world and beyond? 100 people, 100 voices from different countries and cultures express themselves here. Sometimes critical, sometimes witty, sometimes anecdotal, philosophical, poetic or performative, they reflect on the artist's significance today. Taken as a whole, they offer an insight into the contradictions inherent in Beuys as a person and his reception.
