Edinburgh: Demarco Gallery, 1980
32 x 44cm, b/w poster promoting Joseph Beuys Beuys' FIU talk/performance event during the 1980 Edinburgh International Arts Festival. The topics for discussion were political and environmental - with the, then, emotive battle to stop Torness Nuclear Power Station being a major theme as was the battle to release Jimmy Boyle from prison - the former murder's life-changing experience of becoming an artist led to Beuys championing Boyle's release from the Barlinnie Special Unit (where an experiment in penal reform had been spectacularly effective much to the chagrin of the right wing government who did not want such experiments to be proved worthwhile). This poster is not found in the Prestel Beuys Posters catalogue raisonne and is very scarce. VG+.
