How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare

This was a performance piece by the German artist Joseph Beuys, taking place in an art gallery in Düsseldorf in 1965.

The artist locked the gallery doors from the inside. Observers could then watch Beuys walking around the exhibit, and apparently talk to a dead hare on his arm about the artworks. His face was covered in honey and gold leaf.

The performance is considered one of Beuys' key works, and was later recreated by Marina Abramović in 2005.
