Die Fettecke von Joseph Beuys (Videoskulptur)

The incident at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 1986 when a work by Joseph Beuys was removed by employees of the institution is reconstructed and interpreted in Die Fettecke von Joseph Beuys. Bielicky and Peredo allow experts and colleagues (from Klaus Staeck to Nam June Paik) to have their say, and consider their own work experimental, a “video sculpture.” The most important sculptural effect here is that the image appears tipped over at a 45-degree angle.
