Future of Democracy

Joseph Beuys Multiples

In conversation with
Lynette Roth, Head, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art & Daimler Curator of Busch-Reisinger Museum, Harvard Art Museums
and
Maja Wismer, Head of Art after 1960 / Contemporary Art, Kunstmuseum Basel

The Joseph Beuys anniversary inspired many to take a fresh look at the artist and his contributions to the Art world. The Goethe-Institut and its partners initiated numerous projects.

Here in New England we connected with Lynette Roth at the Harvard Art Museums to explore their extensive collection of Beuys Multiples. Listen to Lynette and Maja Wismer, former Curatorial Fellow at the Busch-Reisinger Museum and now at Kunstmuseum Basel, discuss the significance of Beuys' Multiples within the museum context while sharing visual insights into their Museums' Beuys collections.
