Beuys in Düsseldorf: the presence of this world artist, activist and pioneering thinker can be felt everywhere in the city – not only at exhibitions and the Kunstakademie (Academy of Art), but also on facades, in bars and in new concepts. This tour tells the stories behind that powerful presence. It reveals how artists and the city still mutually inspire each other, and it visits the key places around minds, art and conflicts. A guided tour ranging from the Johannes Rau statue to the Kunstakademie to the Beuys Bar explains why Joseph Beuys is inextricably linked with Düsseldorf. It offers insights into the days of student protest that also gripped art institutions. A glance at the river is a vivid reminder of Beuys’s legendary Rhine crossing with his disciples. The city tour makes a stop at the Kunsthalle – a monument to Brutalist art – where Beuys left a lasting mark, as well as at the gallery where Beuys and Andy Warhol had their first legendary meeting.
