For Seven Exhibitions at the Tate Gallery, Beuys contributed a poster with photographs of previous Actions on one side, and English translations of some of his political manifestos on the other. The video shows part of Beuys’s Information Action, in which Beuys responds to questions from artists Gustav Metzger and Richard Hamilton.
