Note: Filzpostkarte (by Joseph Beuys) is not just the title of the item, it is also a play with words: Fil

postkarte – felt postcard-, and Feldpostkarte – a postcard sent to and from soldiers on in the battlfield.

Joseph Beuys’s “Filzpostkarte,” reflects the artist’s esteem for the postcard in general because of its

double function as a vehicle for communication and a simple artistic medium. He, therefore trans

ferred a multitude of materials, important to his work – like wood, copper and even sulphur- into the

form of a postcard.
