Beastie Beuys

posted at 16:38 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

M.River delivered to me last night a video of Joseph Beuys performing as the lead singer of an extremely cheesy german pop band of the early 80s. M.River said to me, “Share this with the world.” And so here it is:

Joseph Beuys Singing (quicktime 4MB)

This video embodies everything MTAA values in art. It is our x-mas gift to you.

update: Thanks to HG over on The Thing we know more about our strange and beautiful video, HG wrote: Sonne statt Reagan - sun instead of Reagan… is a play [on] the fairly similar German word Regen (rain).

The people you see in the video are some state representatives of the Green party and the band Bap, a fairly successful musical abomination from Cologne.
HG also provided a link to the lyrics in the original german and to google’s english translation. Thanks HG! permanent link to this post
