Joseph Beuys: Infiltration homegen fur Konzertflugel, 1966

“The sound of the piano is trapped inside the felt skin. In the normal sense a piano is an instrument used to produce sound. When not in use it is silent but still has a sound potential. Here, no sound is possible and the piano is condemned to silence.” Joseph Beuys
