The Creative in the Artistic Process and Its Meaning for the Human Being and Social Processes

With his famous statement ‘Every human being is an artist’, Joseph Beuys hit the nerve of the times, while formulating a task for the future at the same time. Our current culture, dominated by technical processes, mechanises people and robs them of their life forces and humanity, which ultimately leads to the destruction of culture and nature. In practising artistic skills, every human being can become aware of his or her creative potential and thus become sensitised to the living processes within, one’s fellow human beings and nature.

The aim is to describe this layer of the creative living, the etheric, and to make it an experience through exercises from painting, sculpture, architecture, art contemplation, eurythmy, music, speech formation and drama.
