Beuys’s Action I Love America and America Loves Me took place in May 1974 in a New York gallery, where he spent three days locked in a room with a live coyote. As soon as he got off the plane, he was wrapped in felt and loaded into an ambulance, then driven to the gallery without touching American soil. The Action reflected Beuys’ troubled relationship with the US and its politics. This poster was produced to advertise an exhibition of photographs of the Action shot by Beuys’ collaborator Caroline Tisdall.
