Joseph Beuys's I Like America and america Likes Me (1974). For the opening of the Rene Block Gallery in New York, Beuys lived in the space together with a wild coyote named Little Joe for five days. Wrapped in felt on his arrival at JFK Airport and driven to the gallery by ambulance, Beuys entered the hay-strewn space holding a sheperd's staff. At the end of the five days, he returned to the airport as he had come.
