German artist Beuys (1921-86) produced a huge body of work across all media in pursuit of his idea of life as a total work of art, yet he lacks broad recognition in America. This is in part because many of his most intriguing installations and performances are either lost to posterity or impossible to relocate and in part because smaller individual pieces can seem hermetic outside the context of his philosophy and life. Happily, these two works as well as a touring exhibition of the multiples (Minneapolis, Omaha, Dublin, London, and San Jose through April 2000) may finally bring him wide renown. Borer's (art, Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Tours) work presents itself as catalog to an imaginary exhibition that collects 152 of the artist's most important works in all media and from the four decades he was active. Large, exquisite reproductions, with minimal captions, take up most of the pages. Borer's introductory essay energetically lays the bio-philosophical context for the works. Schellmann's catalogue raisonne of Beuys's more than 600 multiples?encompassing postcards, videos, prints, and sculptural works?was initiated with the artist's involvement in 1971. After seven various German-language incarnations, it now contains new essays and other additions from curators at the American museums that are copublishing the first English-language edition. This is simply the definitive catalogue on one of Beuys's most important bodies of work, and it belongs in all academic and larger public art collections. Borer's book is the first choice for medium-sized art collections in need of an "essential" introduction.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
