This audio recording covers one panel from the Vera List Center-sponsored conference, Considering Joseph Beuys.

Kathy Gonacharov introduces Marcia Tucker, who is moderating a panel titled, "Feminism." Tucker speaks about Beuys inviting American feminist artists to breakfast at the Stanhope Apartment Hotel during his first visit to New York in 1974. The panel consists of artists who attended that breakfast: Mary Miss, Camille Billops, Peggy Jarrell Kaplan, and Dorothea Rockburne. 

From 3:41, Mary Miss shows photographs of the breakfast, before discussing her recollection of the event and the generally negative impression the artists developed of Beuys at the breakfast.

Camille Billops begins to speak at 16:45 on her recollection of the event and her reaction to Beuys's 1974 Guggenheim exhibition.

At 25:40, Dorothea Rockburne speaks on her memory of Beuys.

At 34:10, Marcia Tucker invites Joan Jonas, who is in the audience, to speak on her memories of the event. At 35:05, Tucker speaks on Beuys's arrival at the event.

At 38:50, the panelists discuss their recollection of the event among themselves. Questions from the audience begin at 41:45.

Questions continue on to Side B. The panel concludes at 32:45.
