"WHAT WOULD YOU PUT IN THE HAT OF JOSEPH BEUYS"
Project "Add and Return" dedicated to JOSEPH BEUYS
By Giovanni Bonanno
in collaboration with the Archives Ophen Virtual Art
and the Museum of Art Collection Bongiani Ophen Salerno.
"An idea for hat"
When asked why she always wears the hat? Beuys replied: "This is an attempt to bring the whole world of work is man himself as concept art. This means that at this moment I myself am the work of art. " This is a question that was often directed to Beuys. The German artist had a very personal concept of aesthetics, said: "The concept of beauty in the old sense no longer relevant. For me it develops more and more ... until you get to the point where aesthetics is the same man. The man himself is aesthetic. "The way he was presenting his aesthetic way to be, was the will to manifest in a visible foundation of his thought essential, that is, man. Consequently the clothing was almost a uniform and hat, in particular, had to remind himself and others to have a head: the head is made to think, to bring light, the light of thought that is in balance on the vertical axis, on the upright human being.
