Times:See main article

Joseph Beuys’ multi-disciplinary interests in medicine, science, art, myth and history form the basis of his diverse body of work. His Energy Plan for the Western Man was described by the critic and photographer Werner Krüger as ‘the transformation of Beuysean aesthetic-artistic creativity, his cosmos of ideas, his plastic imagery into photography.’ The exhibition focuses on the relations between Beuys and Krüger who documented his installations and performances. Krüger also played a key role as both a friend and advisor to Elwyn Lynn, first curator of the Power collection.
