Description

A discussion with Joseph Beuys, Bazon Brock, Harald Szeemann, Jobst Siedler and Frei Otto. The reenactment of a television discussion on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name in Zurich, 1983.

The discussion focuses on the question as to whether the idea of the synthesis of the arts conceals a propensity for totalitarianism, which is then reflected in the Fascist aestheticization of the political sphere.
