wie man dem toten Hasen die Bilder erklärt
"Beuys was wearing wide shoes with felt and copper soles, his face was covered with honey and gold leaf as he affectionately cradled the dead hare in his arms, explaining 'art' to him for three hours whilst walking him around the paintings. He then sat on a stool speaking confidentially to the hare, addressing the corpse in an incomprehensible murmur that over-intellectualized people could no longer or could not yet comprehend."full view, Beuys sitting on stool with dead hare.
