Joseph Beuys: Coyote
OUT OF STOCK
Thames & Hudson, Londen, 2008
out of print
The artist’s activities during his confinement with the coyote followed a repeated pattern. He employed a number of objects:â€ˆfelt, a walking stick, gloves, a flashlight and the Wall Street Journal – fifty copies were delivered daily.
Over the period of a week, man and beast developed a mode of wordless co-existence, a two-sided performance that became rich with assumed meanings. Caroline Tisdall, a longstanding friend of the artist, who has written extensively on Beuys and has directed films about him, took most of the photographs and wrote the accompanying text.
