” Art is a genuinely human medium for revolutionary change in the sense of completing the transformation from a sick world to a healthy one.”

“Provocateur – that’s exactly (the artist as provocateur, fh) To provoke means to evoke something. By making a sculpture with fat or a piece of clay I evoke something. I ignite a thought within me – a totally original, totally new thought that has never yet existed in history, even if I deal with a historical fact or with Leonardo or Rembrandt. I myself determine history – it is not history that determines me.. ..every man is a potential provocateur.”

“For twenty years I have been working on an anthropological, human concept of art in which every human being is involved in the process of creation. With which one actually – and with true enthusiasm – arrives at the conclusion: Every human being is an artist! And that begins in the mind. For living thought is already a sculptural, i.e. sculpturally formative procedure, and from this epistemological truth, the human being derives himself as an artist – as a shaper – of the social organism.”

între forma de medicaţie socială prin artă şi calităţile şamanice ale actului de a crea, sculpturile (ca acţiuni) lui Beuys dau un alt sens discursului duchampian de exhibare modernistă. Deşi în aceiaşi tradiţie a ready-made-ului, Beuys moşteneşte spiritualitatea romantică a implicării revoluţionare prin artă, întreprindere colectivă care vine să sprijine cele 3 valori importante ale creatorului: libertate, democraţie, socialism.

pornind de la aspectele ritualice ale folosirii anumitor materiale fetiş : grăsimea si fetrul, Beuys provoacă la o reabilitare umană: materialul ne poate acoperi, apărându-ne şi estompând sunetele ascuţite, ne ţine cald şi este moale, grăsimea închide rănile şi înseamnă supravieţuire.

‘Sculptura socială’ devine o formă de a dubla propriul corp ‘mutilat’ (Beuys a participat în WWII) cu corpul deformat al societăţii. anatomia proiectată este astfel o realitate organică care explică pierderea ‘integrităţii’, corpul trebuie reîntregit, amânat din descompunere prin ‘instrumentul’ artă.
