Tate Papers no.31 Spring 2019

This issue offers new perspectives on the work of Joseph Beuys and his engagement with European history, mythology and geopolitics during the 1970s and 1980s. Subjects covered include the work he made in response to a devastating earthquake in Italy in 1980; the legacies of his counter-educational Free International University; Beuys’s interest in the notion of Eurasia; his collaboration with Danish composer Henning Christiansen; and his involvement in the exhibition Strategy: Get Arts, held in Edinburgh in 1970. Other articles in this issue include a technical study of Frank Bowling’s materials and techniques, and an exploration of Antony Hill’s semiotic approach to concrete painting in the 1950s.
