Joseph Beuys: The Pack (Das Rudel), 1969, Staatliche Museen, Kassel, Neue Galerie
Beuys strongly believed that art had the power to shape a better society and once stated that ‘It was simply impossible for human beings to bring their creative intention into the world any other way than through action.
From the early 1970s, Beuys increasingly made larger scale, room-size installations or ‘environments’ of which The Pack is a seminal example. Consisting of a VW van from which spill twenty-four sledges, each with a roll of felt, a lump of fat and a flashlight, this work explores the concept of human survival in the face of technological failure.
