Joseph Beuys


{May 12, 1921 (Krefeld, Germany) – January 23, 1986 (Duesseldorf, Germany)}


Joseph was a monochrome artist, so in one of the rooms at the Torel Avantgarde hotel, in the center of Porto, the design of the room that represents him is in black and white.

The lamps are green due to the myth that surrounds its history: while a pilot during the war, the plane crashed and was healed with herbs by the people who found it after this accident.

You can find this Executive room in our luxury boutique hotel.

How to explain pictures to a dead hare
The pack
Democracy is merry

“To make people free is the aim of art, therefore art for me is the science of freedom.”   – Joseph Beuys
