Beuys and Beyond - Teaching as Art now in Mexico City

August 19, 2010 │ Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico City, Mexico

During its sojourn in Buenos Aires, the exhibition "Beuys and Beyond" met with overwhelmingly positive response on the part of the public and the press. It will now make a guest appearance at the Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) in Mexico City.

The exhibition, which presents works by Joseph Beuys and his students in dialogue with contemporary Argentinean art, proved to be a veritable blockbuster in Argentina: 

More than 75,000 visitors came to see Beuys and Beyond - Teaching as Art at the Centro Cultural Recoleta. Important local papers such as El Clarín, La Nación, and Perfil dedicated extensive articles to the show.

“Beuys and Beyond” not only shows one of the most fascinating chapters of German art; it also forges new paths, juxtaposing works from the Deutsche Bank Collection with works of local artists. For the Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) in Mexico City,  this is Mario Rangel Faz (1956 - 2009). He is considered to be one of the most influential Mexican artists of his generation. Rangel Faz was not only an exceptional draftsman, graphic artist, and teacher; he also belonged to two important artists' collectives.

After "The Return of the Giants" (2003/2004) with German figurative painting and the photography show "More than Meets the Eye" (2006/2007), this is the third exhibition with works from the Deutsche Bank Collection to tour through Latin America.
