This catalogue accompanies an exhibition by the same name held in 2021 in three venues across Japan. Joseph Beuys and Blinky Palermo were from different generations, but both experienced WWII and the postwar reconstruction, as teacher and pupil. The works of these two superficially contrasting German artists were alike in that both Beuys and Palermo endeavoured to restore art to the status of a raw, live endeavour. Composed primarily of works from the 1960s and ‘70s and detailed texts, the book explores the features of each of these two artists, while simultaneously searching for the latent power of their praxis in their involvement as they overlapped with each other.

Subject Headings: Eastern and Western European Art ; Western Art -- Germany -- Post-1945 -- Several Fine Arts Media (Western) --
