JOSEPH BEUYS: ARENA -- WHERE WOULD I HAVE GOT IF I HAD BEEN INTELLIGENT! Ed. by Lynne Cooke and Karen Kelly. Dia Center for the Arts, New York, 1992. Published 1994. 294 pp. with 151 ills. (101 col.). 31 x 24 cm. LC 93-73428 ISBN 0944521290 In English.
Showcasing a pivotal installation created by Beuys in the early 1970s as both a visual record of and a commentary on his artistic activities of the 1950s and 60s, this catalogue features full-page reproductions of 100 framed panels displaying nearly 250 black-and-white photographs of sculptural objects, performance works and drawings produced by the celebrated German artist (1921-1986) from 1949 to 1971. Three critical essays examining the conceptual and aesthetic issues addressed in the Arena installation and illuminating its role in the formation of Beuys's singular artistic persona are accompanied by an extensive interview with Lucio Amelio, whose Naples gallery hosted the first showing of the complete work in 1972.
