Joseph Beuys: Honigpumpe am Arbeitsplatz Exhibition Poster. Kassel, Germany, 1977. Exhibit poster, offset lithograph, 22 7/8 by 33-inches. Features an image of Beuys by Schwerdtle Grunewald amidst his Honigpumpe. Honigpumpe am Arbeitsplatz (“Honey Pump at the Workplace”) was an installation piece first shown at “Documenta 6,” the largest art show ever held in Germany with over six hundred artists participating and hundreds of thousands of spectators. The Honigpumpe utilized two marine engines, a copper roller, a mass of plastic tubing, and over 200 kilograms of honey and margarine. I’ll let you imagine the rest… Very good with a small corner crease at the lower right, a faint damp stain near the right edge (VERY hard to detect on the front side), very light edge wear, and a half-inch closed tear on the top edge with a old tape repair on the back side. First Edition.
