Jörg Immendorff Honigstand. Stützpunkt von Immendorff 1968

  • Not on view

At Düsseldorf Art Academy in the 1960s, Immendorff was a student of artist Joseph Beuys. In Honigstand. Stützpunkt von Immendorff, the honey flowing down the plank both pays tribute to and mocks Beuys's use of the material in his work as a symbol for joint effort, highlighting the conflict between older and younger generations in Germany at that time—a legacy of the country's troubled history in the twentieth century.
