Josef Beuys Says Nein Danke Reagan!

Art Life , Media , Music Oct 08, 2009 No Comments

“Beuys tried his luck as a pop singer as part of his political commitment. His song ‘Sonne statt Reagan’ attacks Ronald Reagan’s arms policy. The song was issued as a record and Beuys appeared before big audiences with it during the peace movement’s demonstrations and also with the group Die Desserteure in the ARD television broadcast ‘Bananas’ on 3.7.1982. ‘Regen”, pronounced like ‘Reagan’, is the German for ‘rain.'”
