Unpaginated, 195 numbered and titled black-and-white plates, the first half of which are full-page images of Beuys' performance art and appear to be titled _Aktioner Aktionen_. The second half is titled (translated) _Drawings and Objects 1937-1970 from the van der Grinten Collection_. Text is located between these two sections, including essays by Karin Bergqvist Lindegren, K.G.P. Hulten, Dieter Koepplin and Franz Josef van der Grinten.

This collection of images, especially the first half, is a prime example of the performance of art known as Happenings that Beuys, teacher, philosopher, one of the founders of the Fluxus movement, helped to develop.
