Dallas, TX 75208
Beuys emerged from a Germany decimated by world war and then seized in a kind of artistic midlife crisis. Decades later the work of filmmakers like Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders and Rainier Fassbender was all influenced by the destruction of former fascist Germany as was the music of Kraftwerk and Einstürzende Neubauten following that. Joseph Beuys was the rock star of the Fluxus movement that influenced them all. Until now there has never been a comprehensive documentary about the elusive artist that chips away at his mythic persona that became his shadow.
Enjoy complimentary drinks from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at the Texas Theatre bar and Düsseldorf-themed DJ sets by Gina G. and Vectorvision before and following the screening.
