Beuys assumed that every person is an artist. In other words, that each individual in itself has the ability to shape society. “Direkte Demokratie”And the individual should not just be able to shape it, but actually do it. “Kunst = Kapital”Beuys has always dealt with politics and economic issues, like money cycles. “Museum des Geldes” / “Neues vom Gold”Thus, banknotes became works of art, signed or inscribed with messages. Since it is forbidden to do this with valid currency, even if it is art, he got around that by using foreign and old banknotes.
