  • Beuys’s Acorns and Stranded
  • beuysacorns

    In 2007 artists Ackroyd & Harvey gathered and germinated hundreds of acorns from Joseph Beuys’s artwork 7000 Oaks.

    Beuys’s seminal artwork, “7000 Oaks” took place in Kassel, Germany. The 250 surviving saplings make up “Beuys’ Acorns”, an on-going project dedicated to nurturing the plants in tandem with a series of public conversations.

    The growing trees, displayed in the Sculpture Garden, act as a catalyst for discussion about humankind’s relationship with nature and growing concerns about environmental change.
