Joseph Beuys and the Celtic wor(l)d: a language of healing

Joseph Beuys and the Celtic wor(l)d: a language of healing
Joseph Beuys and the Celtic wor(l)d: a language of healing
During the 1970s, the German sculptor Joseph Beuys made a number of trips to Ireland and Scotland. This interdisciplinary study of the artist's work in the "Celtic world" assesses whether the practice shown or developed during these visits could be seen, in any sense, as a language practice - more specifically as a "language of healing" - and whether Beuys could be said to have interpreted and performed notions of Celticity in these places. The book reflects on the anthropological aspect of Beuys' work and includes interview material with artists who worked with or met him at this time.

Abstract

During the 1970s, the German sculptor Joseph Beuys made a number of trips to Ireland and Scotland. This interdisciplinary study of the artist's work in the "Celtic world" assesses whether the practice shown or developed during these visits could be seen, in any sense, as a language practice - more specifically as a "language of healing" - and whether Beuys could be said to have interpreted and performed notions of Celticity in these places. The book reflects on the anthropological aspect of Beuys' work and includes interview material with artists who worked with or met him at this time.
