Tribulations on What Art is?
> Visited a rather humorous exhibition "What's the point of it?" earlier this year. I've since sided with Martin Creed on his opinion.
never heard this name. found in Creed's wiki:
"I don't know what art is"
"I wouldn't call myself an artist"
I've read about art from authors like ortega y gasset, goethe, soloviev, steiner. here are some quotes [missing those from Heinrich Bluecher whom I discovered this author only recently; he lectures brillianty about the meaning of art and its function in evolution of mankind]:
What is true art? That's one of the topics in Solovyov's writings about "The Philosophy of Love" of which "The Meaning of Love." is one part. According to Soloyov
-- quote p194, from vol. 7 (cognition theory) of Solovjov's complete works (in german)
-- quote p36 (my translation from german), Goethes Werke, Band 1, Hrsg. G. Stenzel, Verlag Buch und Zeit, 1958
-- Michio Kitahara (MK — is a quite thought-provoking existentialist. There are many forms of existentialism. Roughly, for these people there is no spirit, no God; this is why Neale Donald Walsh's (NDW) bestseller book 'Conversations with God' is so ridiculous! — NDW being an existentialist**. But that's another story...)
-- MK (private communication)
-- at the end of The Mysteries of Light, of Space, and of the Earth by Rudolf Steiner
-- Goethe? Steiner?
-- Herder, 27 years old, when he talked to Goethe in 1770,
quote p36 (my translation from german), Goethes Werke, Band 1, Hrsg. G. Stenzel, Verlag Buch und Zeit, 1958
(I believe one could safely replace poesie with art.)
-- Rudolf Steiner (related quote: "In the astral world the cause comes after the effect")
p.s.: while I searched the quotes I found this - unrelated:
-- Rudolf Steiner
*) sadly life is so short; we can only read the best books - literatic books.
-- On Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, and The New Revelations by Joseph George Caldwell. (Note, apart from this quote, sparing any explanations (because 'it is not even wrong***') IBS neither endorses (nor recommends to read the rest of) JGC's article — 'eventhough' :) quite interestingly Rudolf Steiner gets mentioned several times — the brilliant bits we found in the text are sparse compared to its length.)
***) Quote Niels Bohr from Faust in Copenhagen: A Struggle for the Soul of Physics by Gino Segre (highly recommended reading!)
