Fun Fact

When Beuys carried out one of his performances, the audience had to be prepared for everything. Unforgettable, for instance, was his performance 'How to explain pictures to a dead hare' in which Beuys- his head covered in gold leaf - treated a dead rabbit like a doll. Even the black & white films that document this performance are still immensely disturbing.

What is less known, however, is that Beuys is said to have prepared the animals from his performances himself afterwards. He was apparently a pretty good chef.
