Encompassing exhibition at the Goetheanum

Dear Friends,

With this letter we would like to invite you to participate in an encompassing exhibition at the Goetheanum. Our aim is to gain a substantial overview of the work of contemporary artists creating out of anthroposophical inspiration and the accompanying meetings around the different aspects of artistic expression.

At the same time we would like to inaugurate an auction to support the artist as well as the work of the visual arts section. 60% of the outcome would be passed on to the section for research and development projects and 40% for the artist.

The exhibition will open on December 7th in the Schreinereisaal at the Goetheanum and close on December 9th 2018.

Visual Art Section

The Visual Art Section encompasses painting, sculpture, graphics, architecture, interior design and furniture. It also includes artistic therapies based on visual arts, in collaboration with the Medical Section. The work arises out of tasks chosen locally at the Goetheanum and by international committees. The theoretical and practical work of the Visual Art Section arises from its task to cultivate and represent Rudolf Steiner’s suggestions and impulses for these arts. To begin with we have the artistic design of the Goetheanum and its neighboring buildings, and landscaping and building projects handled by the Goetheanum Building Administration. Through changing exhibits we present the work of contemporary artists that base their work on Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy. This has included architecture, interior design and graphic design, for example. The Visual Art Section arranges professional conferences and workshops of various lengths, enabling participants to gain further training and meet professional colleagues and Rudolf Steiner’s work through practical and theoretical exercises. As of 1998, experienced individuals have taken responsibility for specific areas of the Section, handling inquiries, organization and representation.
