‘Semah has gone to great lengths to reach deeper levels of understanding Joseph Beuys. He has used a variety of pertinent Judeo-Christian sources, esoterical treatises and writings by secret societies. Starting from a meticulous reading of these texts, leading him along roads as various as those of association, comparison and kinship of sound and image, he has reached a level of understanding important to the interpretation of Beuys’ oeuvre, yet pushed to the background by western thought. Within the perspective of his research Journey into PaRDeS therefore ought to be understood not so much as criticism but rather as an offer, a possible escape from the limitations of western Beuys research.’
