To Mikis Theodorakis’ is a sixteen part work on rough paper from the Hotel Grande Bretagne, a historic five star hotel in Greece. Beuys made drawings on every type of paper from lining paper to wrapping paper and newspaper. Works such as this, which brought together many parts into a single work were common in Beuys’s practice and explored the boundaries between two and three dimensions. The work is dedicated to the world-famous Greek composer and political activist Mikis Theodorakis who was taught by Joseph Beuys.
