«An exhilarating portrait of a unique truth-teller. Makes a strong case for Beuys, emphasizing the social conscience at work in his art.»
– Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
“A new documentary about the legendary conceptual artist. Folks in the know hold Beuys in similar standing to Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol. Not only offers a psychological portrait of the man, but chronicles the many ways he sought to reverse the effects of our repressive social systems — and how his breakthroughs continue to influence artists today.”
– Benjamin Sutton, Hyperallergic
