Looking for a headline font used for Joseph Beuys 'Grasello' Booklet/Exhibition - Apparently from ~1980?

Hey, 

Can anyone help me identify the main font used for the 'Grassello' title? Very uneducated on fonts but saw this at an exhibition in the Pompidou and it caught my eye. 

Have tried IDing it with the 'find my font' website but that didn't really work. Any info would be really appreciated.

Cheers!

A bold condensed weight of the Inserat-Grotesk / Aurora-Grotesk family of 11 typefaces.

Here's a phototypesetting specimen of a more condensed weight (note the alternate characters in the lower left, including the straight-legged R). Your sample isn't as compressed, but the letter forms appear to match.

The smaller type is the same family, probably Aurora-Grotesk halbbreit fett X.

Canada Type's Wagner Grotesk is a single width/weight digital revival.
