On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Joseph Beuys, representatives of Kassel institutions and Beuys actors invite you to a multifaceted cultural program in the documenta city. Under the name BEUYSLABORKASSEL2021, exhibitions, actions, performances and conferences will take place until the end of the year in honor of one of the most influential contemporary artists and seven-time documenta participant.


His ecological visions, discourses on political participation, and the relevance of his art for society are still relevant today and will be brought into focus in the series of events specially conceived for this purpose.


The documenta archiv will also be involved with several projects. In addition to workshops by Beuys student Shelley Sacks and an exhibition of Dieter Schwerdtle photographs on documenta and Joseph Beuys in the Neue Galerie, many activities will also take place in public spaces. Information on the cooperation partners, individual sub-projects and other activities can be found at www.beuyslaborkassel2021.de. Read more in the press release and on our website under News.
