...So the soul, that drop, that ray
Of the clear fountain of Eternal Day,
Could it within the human flower be seen,
Rememb’ring still its former height,
Shuns the sweet leaves and blossoms green;
And, recollecting its own light,
Does, in its pure and circling thoughts, express
The greater heaven in an heaven less....

In all of my actions the public is actively drawn in, whereby a social architecture is established. To form an order of society as a sculpture is my task and that of art. Insofar as man can recognize himself as a being of self-determination, he is in the position to form the contents of the world.
Joseph Beuys, 1972
(in "Beuys on the Future Social Art")
..it is we ourselves who are the primary medium for social sculpture events and who require the most preparatory work.
David Adams, 25 February 2009
... capitalism and communism, both retrograde and antiquated concepts of capital, must be transformed into a notion which firmly recognizes that humanity’s real capital consists of human capacity.
Joseph Beuys, 1982
(In "Art Capital Reading")
World chaos is now our school, and we will be attending it until an imprint is made on enough hearts and minds to change the way the world works.
Anne Mendenhall, 2008 from "The Case for Chaos" (in Publications)
... we must start from the premise that the artist and social sculptor in each person must be awakened and developed in a disciplined and sustained manner. We can ask: Are there ways to awaken and develop the artist in more people? Are there comparable ways to develop the social sculptor in more people?
Michael Howard, 2008 in "Social Sculpture Beyond Beuys" (in Dialogue)
