The well-known Finnish photo and video artist Elina Brotherus (born 1972 in Helsinki) deals with iconic motifs from art history as well as with the reinterpretation of FLUXUS actions and event scores, the recordings of performances. In this context, the artist has also restaged Joseph Beuys' action Kartoffelernte (Potato Harvest), which originally took place in 1977 in front of the gallery of the important FLUXUS and Beuys companion, Rene Block. From the view of a new generation of artists, Elina Brotherus looks at the performances, life and self-dramatisation of her predecessor. In her exploration of Beuys, she shifts perspectives and finds a feminine way of approaching the gestures of the iconic German artist. Gallery owner, museum director and international curator, Rene Block, connects the two artistic personalities of Beuys and Brotherus who belong to different generations. He exhibited, collected and supported both at an early stage of their work through his gallery. During vari
