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.
