»i´m a transmitter, i radiate!« Joseph Beuys, 1964

jsc düsseldorf presents the 16mm film »soziale plastik« (1969) by lutz mommartz. the film is a homage by the filmmaker to his artist colleague, who died in 1986 and is still known today for his confrontational political as well as artistic approach. beuys did not shy away from confrontation and entered into direct contact with his audience. »soziale plastik« shows this in the form of a cinematic portrait in which beuys‘ face can be seen. his eyes fix the audience through a camera gaze that appears endless in the loop.
