ART. MOVES. 03 Achtung Kunst! (Attention: Art!)
With a striking choice of colours and motifs as well as catchy messages and slogans, posters promote art and are works of art in their own right. Drawing from its stock of posters, the Museum Schloss Moyland now presents posters made by artists, including Joseph Beuys, Joseph Fassbender, HAP Grieshaber, Horst Janssen and Nam June Paik.
By displaying posters made for Joseph Beuys' exhibitions and performances ART. MOVES. 03 traces that artist's public image as it was conveyed in the advertising medium of the poster. In these posters, portrait, name and motif are stylised into a brand. They helped the artist to disseminate his artistic ideas of Social Sculpture.
