Guest Appearance Goetheanum
Workshop series Living Archive from the Kunstmuseum Basel at the Goetheanum

The Kunstmuseum Basel will present its workshop series Living Archiveat the Goetheanum on 15th June. Participation is free of charge, but advance registration requested.

This summer, the Kunstmuseum Basel launched its first ‘Living Archive‘ series. The focus is on a new interpretation of works from the museum‘s art collection. Cultural scholar Stefan Wagner and other experts will examine themes such as nature, spirituality, empty spaces, the environment and food. Workshops will also be held at external venues, including the Goetheanum.

Esther Gerster, lecturer for painting at the Gotheanum and director of guided tours, has set up a three-track programme under the motto ‘Life and Art’: In addition to the open visiting tours and practical introductions to Eurythmy, the programme offers a comprehensive opportunity to experience the Goetheanum impulse using Goethe‘s method of epistemology. The programme also includes landscape design, the use of colour, a visit to the ‘ErziehungsKunst’ exhibition and an examination of contemporary art from an anthroposophical point of view with a number of different lecturers.

An info point will be set up at the Goetheanum reception for questions on June 15th.
