31st January - 3rd February 2019
February Days 2019 (DE, EN, FR)
This year's theme of "Art and Spirit" will bring us together at the Goetheanum during a new edition of February Days to discuss and explore the different practices of art and the role it fulfils today.
❋ Where do we find the spiritual in art?
❋ How do art, science and spirituality relate to each other?
❋ Where do we find the artists of today?
❋ Where does the artistic impulse in the human being come from?
These and many other questions will be at the centre of our lectures, workshops, conversations and other activities that will help us to think about the task of art in the path of knowledge, and how the spiritual aspect of it can be a contributory factor to a real social transformation.
February Days is an annual conference organised by members of the Youth Section at Goetheanum to explore questions about Rudolf Steiner’s impulse and its meaning in present times.
