Wo ist Element 3?

Performance, 29 Oct 2021

Bjørn Nørgaard just visited the city of Manresa in Catalonia, Spain, within the framework of the city’s project ‘Manresa 2022’. Alongside a ‘speech-action’ and a television interview, Nørgaard also gave a lecture about late American artist Joseph Beuys’ influence on contemporary art. In 1966, Bjørn Nørgaard and Henning Christiansen were the first artists ever to participate in one of Beuys’ own performative actions titled Manresa.

While Nørgaard’s work as a sculptor is well known, his performative ‘actions’ are a significant part of his oeuvre as well. Captured here is a photo from his ‘speech-action’ performed in Manresa last week under the title Wo ist Element 3.
