Beuys

Another drawing alludes

Another drawing alludes to mathematical forms and concepts in the natural sciences: – Regular solids (in Leonardo’s and Dürer’s tradition), – Crystallization as a inorganic process, – Embryology (compare Thom’s morphogenesis, 1972). – Energy flow and thermodynamics (warmth). A very complex diagram named “Evolution” combines even more categories: – Human body, a deer, plants, crystals, water, the sun, – Social scales: Bürger – Künstler – Arbeiter; Geistesleben – Rechtsleben – Wirtschaftsleben. – Names of philosophers on a historical scale: Plato/ Aristoteles, Newton /Kant/Helmholtz, Marx. The extremes are marked by Christus. – The dominating drawing at the right is based on the sun and its rays (warmth) and supports pictures of the human body, the structure of a plant (cf. Goethe) and the deer (symbol of the soul).

Untitled diagram by Beuys (Evolution), 1974 In fact an accumulation of diagrams in one drawing Untitled diagram by Beuys 1972 Order and form are depicted by crystals (regular solids)
