Rudolf Steiner and Contemporary ArtRudolf Steiner and Contemporary Art

Published by DuMont Buchverlag.
Edited by Markus Brüderlin, Ulrike Groos.

At once a philosopher, educational and medical reformist, mystic and artist, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was the founder of a spiritual movement he dubbed Anthroposophy, and of the famous school system that bears his name. Anthroposophy combined elements of German philosophy with Theosophical theory, and also made use of architecture, dance (Eurthymy), painting and sculpture to illustrate his ideas. Steiner's artworks occupy a fascinatingly ambiguous status as both pedagogical and aesthetic entities, and served as springboards for the early work of Mondrian and Kandinsky among others; they have continued to influence artists down the generations. In 1992, Steiner's panel drawings were exhibited at the Galerie Monika Sprüth in Cologne, renewing their efficacy for contemporary artists. Published for the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg's 2010 exhibition, this book is the first assessment of the influence of Anthroposophical thought on contemporary art.
