Rubberized Box :By Joseph Beuys 1957 Pine wood rubber and tar. 43 x 91 x 77 cm Block Beuys at the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt Room 2 Photograph by Ute Klophaus
“The outward appearance of every object I make is the equivalent of some aspect of inner human life. This box came out of my period of crisis and expresses my inner condition. My feelings then had this special kind of darkness almost black like this mixture of rubber and tar. It is certainly an equivalent of the pathological state mentioned before and expresses the need to create a space in the mind from which all disturbances were removed, an empty insulated space.” Joseph Beuys
