“Let’s talk of a system that transforms all the social organisms into a work of art, in which the entire process of work is included.. something in which the principle of production and consumption takes on a form of quality. It’s a Gigantic project.”

Photograph: Hanns Sohm. 1965. Joseph Beuys spends the duration of a 24-hour action titled 'und in uns ... unter uns ... landunter' ('and in us ... under us ... flooded') on top of a small white box. There he performs a sequence of individual actions that are repeated cyclically in the course of time. The various objects he uses include a wedge of fat, a double spade, and a recording tape onto which he articulates sounds and text fragments in compliance with a score, and then plays them back.
