Summary Beuys. Der Mann mit dem Hut, dem Filz und der Fettecke. 30 Jahre nach seinem Tod erscheint er uns als Visionär, der seiner Zeit voraus war. Geduldig versuchte er uns schon damals zu erklären, dass "Geld keine Ware sein darf". Er wusste, dass der Geldhandel die Demokratie unterwandern würde. Doch mehr als das. Beuys boxt, parliert, doziert und erklärt dem toten Hasen die Kunst. "Wollen Sie eine Revolution ohne Lachen machen?" fragt er grinsend. Sein erweiterter Kunstbegriff führte ihn mitten in den Kern auch heute relevanter gesellschaftlicher Debatten. Aus einer kongenial montierten Collage unzähliger, bisher unerschlossener Bild- und Tondokumente stellen Regisseur Andres Veiel und sein Team ein einzigartiges Zeitdokument zusammen: "BEUYS" ist kein klassisches Porträt, sondern eine intime Betrachtung des Menschen, seiner Kunst und seiner Ideenräume.
Thirty years after his death, Joseph Beuys still feels like a visionary and is widely considered one of the most influential artists of his generation. Known for his contributions to the Fluxus movement and his work across diverse media - from happening and performance to sculpture, installation, and graphic art - Beuys' expanded concept of the role of the artist places him in the middle of socially relevant discourses on media, community, and capitalism. Using previously untapped visual and audio sources, director Andras Veiel has created a one-of-a-kind chronicle: Beuys is not a portrait in the traditional sense, but an intimate and in-depth look at a human being, his art and ideas, and the way they have impacted the world.
