Amongst artist Joseph Beuys’ innovations was the idea of “social sculpture”, a concept that expands the definition of art to include human activity, and considers art’s potential to transform society. The Free International University was founded by Beuys in Düsseldorf in 1973 as an extension of this idea and would have a number of manifestations in different countries throughout the 70s and 80s.
This Joseph Beuys exhibition poster part of a large collection of art gallery posters from the 1980’s and 90’s recently acquired by Gallery 98.
