This collection of trans-disciplinary essays addresses the artistic,
cultural and political legacies of Joseph Beuys‘ expanded concept of art
and its societal application, for example through the Free International
University (FIU). Since the 1980s, Beuys‘ practice has had a strong
influence on the Peaceful Revolution, „relational aesthetics“ and the „art
and reconciliation“ movement, attempting to bring about cultural
understanding and reconciliation in situations of conflict. His work is
pertinent to how we think about diversity and sustainability and may
constitute an applied anthropology.
