Joseph Beuys Archive

The Joseph Beuys Archive is part of the Museum Schloss Moyland, as an international research centre, and simultaneously serves as an institute at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (academy of arts). It contains a large holding of archive materials on Joseph Beuys, one of the most important artists of the 20th century. The extensive stock of both artworks and archive materials by and on Joseph Beuys under one roof is unique worldwide.


The Joseph Beuys Archive is open to the public. We offer personal advice and assistance. We are also happy to receive your research requests by telephone, e-mail or mail. For extensive research projects, a personal visit to the archive is advisable (advance notice is preferred). The reading room of the archive has ten work stations, one computer desk with an internet connection and a photocopier.
