Beuys' Rose for Direct Democracy

Beuys' Rose for Direct Democracy


Joseph Beuys' 1973 piece, Rose for Direct Democracy [Rose für Direkte Demokratie], is comprised of a rose in a graduated cylinder. A symbol for the combination of love and knowledge as a way of progressing forward. This image was taken at a museum where the piece lies in a display case, alluding to a future where democracy is a relic of the past -- a real danger if we do not show up, be heard and resist. 

"Bud and bloom are in fact green leaves transformed. So in relation to the leaves and the stem the bloom is a revolution, although it grows through organic transformation and evolution." - Joseph Beuys
