Joseph Beuys – Filz-TV (Felt TV) (1970)

I just love performance documentation. Though often it is nowhere close to experiencing the real thing. In fact, in my mind, the document is the performance’s antithesis. Still, I think this video gives you good wtf sense of the original but perhaps that’s because this document is the performance. According to artforum, “it is the only Beuys action executed specifically for the camera.”
