Honey is flowing in all directions
This piece of sculpture was first installed by Beuys in Kassel. On 28th June 1977 he invited us to join him in servicing and maintaining the "honey pump". Without a word being spoken, he led our cameras to every detail of his installation and thus explained its functions and mode of operation. Beuys financed the "honey pump" as well as all related events by private means, which caused considerable problems for him. Today, the "honey pump" is to be found, in pieces, in the Louisiana Museum in the Danish town Humlebaek. The boards are on show in the "Hall for New Arts" in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
The pictures, which are published for the first time in this volume, have lain in an archive box for twenty years. In early 1997 we have arranged them in this book.
