A group exhibition on the occasion of the ‘Beuys Centenary’.

About

Born, 12 May 1921 – lived forever after, 23 January 1986.

Joseph Beuys continues to be a complex figure. A maverick. On the occasion of his centenary, Beuys Open Source intends to be an enabler of fantasies, a (non)ground, and a catalyst for conversations.

Rather than a show in homage to Beuys, the conversation platform – the blackboard as it were – established within and beyond Belmacz’s London space, acts as an open plan office for prefigurative fantasy. That is, a place where some sort of source code can be mined, traded, and debated anew.

From sculpture to sound, the multifarious artists brought together each embrace the potentials of materials, constructing around these rich narratives, falsies, and conspiracies. In turn echoing, in their particular way, the Geist of Beuys: nature and mysticism; alchemy as trial and error; education, a must; activism; process; all swaddled by natural ability.
