Arena: where would I have got if I had been intelligent!
Dia Center for the Arts, 1994 - Art - 294 pages
"Arena" is a major but rarely exhibited Beuys work that consists of 100 panels containing several hundred photographs of Beuys, spanning the artist's career from the late 40s to 1972. Realized in 1973, "Arena" attains a monumental scale and the sort of grand design appropriate to an artistic summa; as such, the project amounts to a broad portrait of Beuys' artistic persona. It is here documented for the first time.
