After a year of activity around the 100th birthday of Joseph Beuys, a publication came about that can be seen on the one hand as a report and on the other hand as a restart. With the support of the research group ArchiVolt, a limited edition of 300 copies was made. It will be presented on Friday 27 May at 7 pm at Coppejans Gallery.

The portfolio consists of a gramophone record, a cover box and a series of loose sheets with contributions from the artists and organisations that participated in the project. The authors are Stijn Coppejans, Nico Dockx and Johan Pas and the contributors are Thomas Betsens, Stijn Coppejans, German Ambassador Kotthaus, dasKULTURforum Antwerp, Anny De Decker, Ronny Delrue, Nico Dockx, Egon Hanfstingl, Antoon Melissen, Carmine Iacolare, Johan Pas, Mauro Pawlowski, Laurence Petrone, Adriaan Rees, Fabien Silvestre Suzor, Philippe Van Cauteren, Bart Van Dijck, Johanna Van Overmeir, Louwrien Wijers and the Lothar Wolleh Estate.

The gramophone record contains sound fragments of 3 performances that took place during the Antwerp Art Weekend 2021 in the BeuysCage at Coppejans Gallery: Mauro Pawlowski, Thomas Betsens and Adriaan Rees.

In addition to the printed publication, a small edition of manually edited sheets will be provided by the artists. These will be individually numbered as a special edition. The numbering is as follows:
