Felt Suit 
Berlin, Germany: Galerie René Block, 1970

Felt Suit (or Filzanzug) is an unlined two-piece suit comprising a jacket and a pair of pants made of coarse grey felt, reportedly tailored after one that the artist himself wore.

"I don’t give a damn [how it's displayed]. You can nail the suit to the wall. You can also hang it on a hanger, ad libitum! But you can also wear it or throw it into a chest."
- Joseph Beuys
