Joseph Beuys was photographed extensively during his career, whether at work, while traveling, or at home. Yet only a few photographers had the privileged access and tenacity of graphic artist Klaus Staeck and printer/publisher Gerhard Steidl, who accompanied Beuys with their cameras from 1970 until his death in 1986. Staeck and Steidl were part of Beuys’ entourage, collaborated closely with him to produce his multiples and objects, and documented intimate aspects of the life of this unmatched artist-performer—from his home at Drakeplatz 4 in Düsseldorf, to international workshops, lectures and the installation of important works such as Honeypump in the Workplace at documenta 6 in 1977, and Wirtschaftswerte (Economic Values) at the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent in 1980. Beuys Book reveals Beuys’ unique, charismatic personality which influenced not only those he met, but society and art in general.
