Gloria Grahame

Directed by Fritz Lang

“ The most memorable violence in The Big Heat is the flinging of scalding hot coffee in Gloria Grahame’s face by Lee Marvin, and later (in a vendetta worthy of Kriemhild), in his face by her. Lang’s explosive Mise-en-scène implies that the world must be destroyed before it can be purified.”

— Film historian Andrew Sarris in “You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet.”: The American Talking Film History & Memory, 1927-1949.

Joseph Beuys

by Joseph Beuys - 1965
Photograph: Ute Klophaus

The invited public arrived at the gallery to find the doors locked. Through the glass front of the gallery they saw Beuys sitting in a chair with his face covered in honey and gold leaf, cradling a dead hare in his arms. Slowly he got up and wandered around the exhibition, as if explaining each work to the hare.
