The artist with the hat, the felt and the fat corner. He was a German performance artist, graphic artist, art professor and art theorist.

In his extensive work, Beuys dealt with questions of humanism, social philosophy and anthroposophy. He formed the "expanded concept of art" and created the "social sculpture", in which communication with people, animals and nature, and not the person or the work of the artist, should be the focus.

Today, 35 years after his death, Beuys is still the symbolic figure of the provocative artist, the visionary who was ahead of his time.

"Every person is an artist", was his credo. " "To be a teacher is my greatest work of art...", he said and this became the occasion to exhibit works of Beuys and his students, an exhibition of the Deutsche Bank Collection. It was shown in Istanbul in 2009 at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum. 24 of these works can be viewed on a virtual tour in Darağaç, the artists district of İzmir, Konak.

The exhibition was made possible with funds from the Ernst Reuter Initiative. Our special thanks also go to the Deutsche Bank Collection, the artist collective Daragac and their neighbourhood, the curator of the exhibition in Izmir Jörn Fröhlich and the "Maker the CAT" team under the leadership of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Güzden Varinlioğlu for the digital adaptation.
