Joseph Beuys's Action Piece 26-6 February 1972.Eerlijk gezegd heb ik me - oh schande - nooit erg in het werk van De Grote Beuys verdiept maar dat hij groot is staat buiten kijf. Later als ik oud en grijs ben en zeeën van tijd heb, dan... Maar misschien hoeven we ons, zoals Beuys zelf ooit zei, ook niet al te druk te maken over de achtergronden van zijn werk en gewoon kijken:

"But what does it all mean? Does it have to mean anything? "People first of all have to be able to see. In art, there is nothing to understand, absolutely nothing", Beuys once said. What it is hard not to think about is the artist himself. At Tate Modern's Beuys exhibition, which opens tomorrow, he is there at every turn, a ghost in a fly-fisherman's vest and one of those elegant hats he wore, stalking the work beside you as you wander through the rooms."

> The antidote to beauty - the Guardian over de Joseph Beuys tentoonstelling die gisteren opende en tot en met 2 mei te zien is in Tate Modern in Londen.
