Art = Life = Art From Beuys To Buddhism
Regular price $37.00
“Joseph Beuys (1921 – 1986) is considered one of the most influential German artists of the second half of the twentieth century. His ‘extended concept of art’, in which the process of living itself becomes the creative act, has shaped the life and work of Dutch media artist Babeth Mondini-VanLoo.
Her contribution lies not in visual beauty, but compelled by an inner search for truth she intends her projects to be vehicles of meaning as life-process. Whether it is about art studies, cultural input, filmmaking, punk or Buddhism, this book exposes some of the energies that led to the creation of antidotes of female healing towards a more compassionate world in which we are all artists, and all Buddhas.”
A richly illustrated work that explores Babeth Mondini-VanLoo’s unique approach to art and traces all the major influences on her work, particularly the work of her friend and mentor Joseph Beuys as well as Buddhism, with texts by Matthieu Ricard, Antje von Graevenitz, Dorothea Franck, Lene Gravesen, Christina Svane and Meredith Monk, cloth-bound hard cover in dust jacket, 29 x 23 cm, 256 pages, Amsterdam 2016
