Joseph Beuys was born on May 12, 1921 in the little town of Cleves in  the Northwestern corner of Germany, near the Dutch border.  (Beuys is a Dutch name; it rhymes with "voice").  He grew up in the troubled years of post World War I Germany.  He worked on farms as a boy, as an adolescent he joined a traveling circus.  At nineteen, he was conscripted into the Luftwaffe and was injured several times.  In 1945 he turned to sculpture and painting.
