Kunst – Spirituelle Kunst

 

Die Sieben freien Künste mit ihren Attributen


 

Sinn geht der Form voraus.

 

In der Kunst könnt Ihr nicht lügen.
Du wisse das und warte,
denn die Form muss eher zu schwingen beginnen als der Sinn,
jedoch muss der Sinn eher da sein als die Form.
Der Sinn bildet die Form.

 

Es singe in Dir, ehe Du singst, sonst sprichst Du nur.
Das echte Gedicht ist immer weiser als sein Dichter.
Nur singende Bücher verzaubern,
die klugen lassen unverwandelt.

 

Rainer Bertram

Lehrsysteme Trivium und Quadrivium – Die sieben freien Künste

Die klassischen sieben freien Künste beinhalten zwei logisch aufgebaute Lehrsysteme:
  1. das grundlegende dreistufige Trivium und
  2. das fortgeschrittene vierstufige Quadrivium.

Im Altertum waren die Sklaven zuständig für Handarbeit und Handwerk. Eine Ausbildung, die auf Buchwissen basierte, wurde ihnen verwehrt. Bildung war nur freien schreib- und lesekundigen Bürgern zugänglich.
Merke: Das Wort 'frei' wird abgeleitet vom lateinischen Wort 'liber', das Buch heißt.

 

Trivium (Dreiweg) – Sprache
Das Trivium ist ein inklusives Lehrsystem, das vorwiegend von dem
griechischen Philosophen Aristoteles entwickelt wurde.

Zitate zum Thema Kunst / Art

Zitate allgemein

Schlussfolgerung

  • Wir wissen alle, dass Kunst nicht Wahrheit ist. Kunst ist eine Lüge, die uns die Wahrheit begreifen lehrt, wenigstens die Wahrheit, die wir als Menschen begreifen können. Der Künstler muss wissen, auf welche Art er die anderen von der Wahrhaftigkeit seiner Lügen überzeugen kann. Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) spanischer Maler, Grafiker, Bildhauer, 1923
  • Praxis ist Kunst, Spekulation ist Wissenschaft, Religion ist Sinn und Geschmack fürs Unendliche. Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher (1768-1834) deutscher protestantischer Theologe, Altphilologe, Philosoph, Staatstheoretiker, Soziologe, Kirchenpolitiker, Pädagoge, Publizist, Über die Religion. Reden an die Gebildeten unter ihren Verächtern, Berlin, 1799

Redekunst

Aristoteles' Ansatz berücksichtigt die ethische Haltung des Sprechers sowie dessen Logik und Dialektik und zuguterletzt den Entwicklungsstand der Empfänger. Alle drei sind in Betracht zu ziehen. Wenn man versäumt zu bedenken, auf welchem Niveau sich die Menschen befinden, fällt man beim Publikum durch. Die Botschaft kommt nicht an. Man muss ein Thema so kontextualisieren, dass es verständlich und annehmbar ist. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Emotions and Sensations, 3 DVD-Set, 17. April 2004

Recommendations

  • [G]o into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake.

    ➤ Dance to the radio.
    ➤ Tell stories.
    ➤ Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem.
    ➤ Do it as well as you possibly can.
    You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (1922-2007) influential US American writer of the 20th century, A Man Without a Country, Seven Stories Press, 15. September 2005

Call to action

 

  • This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal. I know the world is bruised and bleeding, and though it is important not to ignore its pain, it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence. Toni Morrison (*1931) US American professor of humanities, Princeton University, editor, poet, novelist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1993, Pulitzer Prize laureate, source unknown

 

Future prospects

  • When the infinite servitude of women shall have ended, she will be able to live by and for herself; man – hitherto abominable – will give her her freedom, and she too will be a poet. Women will discover the unknown. Will her world be different from ours [men's]? She will discover strange, unfathomable things – repulsive, delicious. We shall take [confiscate] them. We shall understand them. Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) French poet influential on modern literature and arts (surrealism), letter, written 15. May 1871

 

  • Poetry can break open locked chambers of possibility, restore numbed zones to feeling, recharge desire. […] I have never believed that poetry is an escape from history, and I do not think it is more, or less, necessary than food, shelter, health, education, decent working conditions. It is as necessary. […] Where every public decision has to be justified in the scales of corporate profits, poetry unsettles these apparently self-evident propositions – not through ideology, but by its very presence and ways of being, its embodiment of states of longing and desire. […] We see despair when social arrogance and indifference exist in the same person with the willingness to live at devastating levels of superficiality and self-trivialization. […] Despair, when not the response to absolute physical and moral defeat, is, like war, the failure of imagination. Foreword written by Adrienne Rich (1929-2012) US American visiting professor of creative writing, feminist, poet, essayist, cited in:  William Carlos Williams, US American poet, Asphodel, That Greeny Flower, poem, 1993

 

Insights

  • He who works with his hands is a laborer.
    He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
    He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
    Louis Nizer (1902-1994) noted British American trial lawyer, senior partner of a law firm, Between You and Me, 1948
Quote is frequently mis-attributed to the Italian Catholic saint St Francis of Assisi (1181/82-1226)
  • Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is "man" in a higher sense – he is "collective man" – a vehicle and moulder of the unconscious psychic life of mankind. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of analytical depth psychology, author, Psychology and Literature, 1930, 1950

  • An artist is a creature driven by demons.
    He don’t know why they choose him and he’s usually too busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done.

  • Art is a lie that makes us realize truth at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) Spanish painter, graphic artist, sculptor, 1923

 

  • Art, it is said, is not a mirror, but a hammer: it does not reflect, it shapes. Leon Trotsky (1879-1940) Russian Marxist, intellectual, revolutionary, founder of the Politburo in the early Soviet Union, people's commissar for foreign affairs, leader of the Red Army, Literature and Revolution, 1924
    • Art is not a mirror to hold up to society, but a hammer with which to shape it. Attributed to Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) German theatre director, playwright, poet

 

  • All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique.
    All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.
    James Baldwin (1924-1987) US afroamerican writer of the 20th century, source unknown

 

  • Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) German classical scholar, critic of culture, philosopher of nihilism, source unknown

Connecting the dots

Big picture thinking

  • Artists are those people who have the ability to make new and unique connections between apparently unrelated things, people who can step outside of their own field of experience, and are able to describe the experience of the whole. They are able not only fill the viewer with the artist’s vision, but fill them with a vision of their own. Annette Jahnel (*1962) South African photographer, artist, world traveller touring with project "Searching for Galileo", public speaker, author, My Year of Beds, AJ Publishers (BoD), 18. May 2011

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

(↓)

History: a chain of stories

  • Art seeks to abstract this awareness when it takes one moment in time and freezes it in photographic art or sculpture. Each stop frame depicts the perfection that can be appreciated only when a single view is isolated from the distortion of the superimposed story. The drama of every moment of existence lends itself to preservation when art saves it from the extinction of transformation of material form called history. The innocence intrinsic to any given moment is apparent when that moment is taken out of the context projected onto a sequence of selected moments that then become a 'story'. Once converted into a story by the dualistic mind, the terms 'good' or 'bad' are then applied. One can readily see that even the terms 'good' or 'bad' refer in their origination to what is really merely human desire. If something is desired, it becomes a 'good', and if undesired, it becomes a 'bad'. If human judgmentalism is removed from observation, all that can be seen is that form is in constant evolution as 'change', which is neither intrinsically desirable nor undesirable. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. ?, Hay House, February 2002

Along the Path to Enlightenment. 365 Reflections from David R. Hawkins, edited by Scott Jeffrey, S. ?, Reflection of March 18th, January 2011

  • There is no art without love. Art is always the making of the soul, the craft of man's touch, whether that touch is corporeal or the touch of the mind and spirit; so it has been since Neanderthal times, and so it will always be. Thus we find that computer-generated art and even great photographs never calibrate as highly as original paintings. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Power vs. Force.

Art of lecturing

  • There are three ways of presenting truth:
    1. Ethos,
    2. logos,
    3. pathos.
Aristotle's approach, considers the ethic standing of the speaker, the logic and dialectic of the speaker, and lastly the standing of the listener/s. You have to consider all three. The failure to take into consideration where the audience is a means that you fall flat. It's not getting across. You have to contextualize a thing so that it's comprehensible and acceptable. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Emotions and Sensations, 3 DVD set, 17. April 2004

Teaching systems Trivium and Quadrivium – The seven liberal arts

The classical seven liberal arts comprise two logically built teaching systems:
  1. the basic Trivium (the three ways) followed by
  2. the advanced Quadrivium (the four ways).

The liberal arts are based on abstract book knowledge. In ancient times illiterate sklaves were meant for handwork and denied literacy based education. Only free citizens were given access to education.
Note: 'Free' as in 'liberal' stems from the Latin word 'liber', which means book.

 

Trivium (Three roads crossing) – Language
The Trivium is an inclusive basic teaching system which was
primarily developed by the Greek philosopher Aristotle.
The proper sequence is essential as dis-order will distort the recognition of truth.

Abusive artist Pablo Picasso

Avowed atheist Pablo Picasso was a borderline psychopath who
regularly abused his wives and mistresses for the most part of his life.
Post mortem Picasso's reputation as an artist is handled by art owners, museums,
and curators all of whom profit in Picasso's ongoing and growing legend.

  • [*]Dora Maar to Pablo Picasso: As an artist you may be extraordinary, but morally speaking you are worthless. 2
  • Relinquished Dora Maar to a proposal of marriage by Paul Eluards: After Picasso, only God. Dora Maar (1907-1997) French-Croatian Argentinian-raised photographer, Pablo Picasso's muse (1936-1944) painter, poet, Picasso's mistress (1937-1943), 3, 2014

 


The Weeping Woman, 1937
Artist Pablo Picasso
  • Pablo Picasso about Dora Maar: For me she's the weeping woman. For years I've painted her in tortured forms, not through sadism, and not with pleasure, either; just obeying a vision that forced itself on me. It was the deep reality, not the superficial one. […] Dora, for me, was always a weeping woman [...]. And it's important, because women are suffering machines. Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) Spanish painter, graphic artist, sculptor, 2, 2012

 

  • Patrick O'Brian on Pablo Picasso: Picasso's feeling for women oscillated between extreme tenderness on the one hand and violent hatred on the other, the mid-point being dislike – if not contempt. Patrick O'Brian (1914-2000) English translator, novelist, 2, 2012

 

  • Picasso was a sadist who abused his women – wives, lovers and muses alike; beating one until she was unconscious and taking pleasure in holding a lighting candle to the face of another. Promiscuous all his adult life, Picasso viewed women as sexual objects there to meet his sexual needs.
    He wooed them, adored them and abused them in turn and, when he tired of them, discarded them cruelly. Much of his life's work focussed on sexual themes such as voyeurism, prostitution, impotence and sexual violence.
    1, 2007

 

  • He [Picasso] brought to painting the vision of disintegration that Schoenberg and Bartok brought to music, Kafka and Beckett to literature. He took to its ultimate conclusion the negative vision of the modernist world. Epilogue of 4, 1988

 

Genius extracts a high price from those around it.
"His [Picasso] brilliant oeuvre demanded human sacrifices. He drove everyone who got near him to despair and engulfed them. No one in my family ever managed to escape from the stranglehold of this genius. He needed blood to sign each of his paintings: my father's blood, my brother's, my mother's, my grandmother's and mine. He needed the blood of those who loved him – people who thought they loved a human being, whereas they really loved Picasso. […]
He [Picasso] submitted them to his animal sexuality, tamed them, bewitched them, ingested them and crushed them onto his canvas. After he had spent many nights extracting their essence, once they were bled dry, he would dispose of them. […]
Either people are strong enough to walk away, or they crystallize around the genius and suffer one or two generations of destruction. It's what happened to us. When I was a child I could not see that. Today, in the same situation, if I were strong enough, I would run away. I'd prefer to become a hippie."
5, Marina Picasso, 2001

 

Message intertwined with messenger
Like everyone else in her surroundings Californian teacher of energy healing Rosalyn Bruyere was taken with
Picasso's pictures. When she found out that painter Picasso was a full blown domestic abuser her relationship with
this painter and his work was shattered. During his adult life Picasso had beaten all his wives and mistresses to
let off steam. Following that he practiced his various art styles. Bruyere took a second deeper look at
Picasso's pictures and noticed that she did not approve of his displaced depictions of women any longer.

 

Readers' comments, presented by Goodreads
As a lover of art, I was fascinated by Picasso's life, that is, until I read it and realized he was a profound monster who hated women as well as any other artist who dared cross his path. Unforunately, I'll never look at his work again without it being overshadowed by his attempt to destroy the lives of every person he came in contact. Particularly horrific was how he allowed one of his best friends to die in a concentration camp rather than sign a letter to free him.  Jennifer Miller, 10. February 2011

I like Picasso the man less now than I previously did and it has made me see his art in a different context.  Sara Murphy, 17. September 2015

Despite being the son of an art teacher, I never had much interest in his works prior to college. Ironically, I now have little interest in following him as an artist. He's a beast of a person.  Craig Adamson, 24. Januar 2016

 

Spiritual wisdom along with emotional maturity requires that the viewer, the listener, the reader, the recipient
not only is willing to test the message, the writing, the art, the music, but also the messenger.

  • Jeder Versuch, Picasso zu verstehen, bleibt hoffnungslos, wenn wir nicht davon ausgehen, dass er niemals einen Menschen so nah an sich heranließ, dass dieser hätte erahnen können, welch immense Angst in ihm lauerte. Eine seiner beachtlichsten Leistungen während der mehr als neunzig Jahre seines Lebens bestand darin, diese große innere Angst soweit zu beherrschen, dass sie ihn zum Arbeiten anregte – und wie er arbeitete! Arbeit war sein Zaubertrank gegen die Angst.  Norman Mailer (1923-2007) US-amerikanischer Journalist, Filmemacher, Schauspieler, Schriftsteller, Picasso, S. 219, Piper Verlag, München, 1998
