Note: This was issued in a portfolio of 28 prints in mixed media, one object and one record, by 30 different artists. It was made for Joseph Beuys after his death in 1986. Bernd Klüser and Jörg Schellmann - who had worked with Beuys on exhibitions, books, and editions since 1969 - jointly published the portfolio to honour this outstanding artist who had been of crucial artistic and personal influence to both partners. Invited to participate in this project were artists who had set a mark in the recent years and whom Bernd Klüser or Jörg Schellmann had worked with on shows or editions.
