Beuys refused to travel to the USA during the Vietnam War, until he finally accepted the invitation of New York gallerist Ronald Feldman. For his first trip he chose not to do an exhibition but to engage in public dialogues with students and women’s groups with Actions in New York, Minneapolis and Chicago. The tour started at the New School for Social Research in New York on 11 January, with a three-hour conference entitled The Energy Plan for the Western Man.
