Escuela Cultura, transformative and active impulse of the Sa Llavor Foundation, in collaboration with Visionary Woman Art Research Group, presents in January 2022 a new cycle of Artistic Workshop with theoretical-practical work sessions for adults, which reconnect with the essence of art and live the artistic process as a journey into the unknown where intuiting and imagining gives us inspiration and deep learning on a personal and social level.
7 meetings // 7 Sundays

from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Visionary Woman Art Research Group, Barcelona
In this First Cycle of Artistic and Healing Processes, we are going to explore the relationship between Art, Science and Spirituality in constellation with the works of Hilma af Klint and Emma Kunz. We open a space for experimentation, creation and critical thinking through artistic practices, scientific experiments created at the beginning of the 20th century, Goethean observation, movement and words. This space of seven sessions of four hours each, is led by specialists in one or more of the proposed topics, with the intention of opening doors to liminal spaces. The artistic processes carried out by the participants are visualized and taken into an exhibition format.
Hilma af Klint and Emma Kunz
Researchers and artists, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) and Emma Kunz (1892-1963), explored the supersensible world through art and science, predicting that their work would be understood and useful for future generations. The incredible popularity of his works today confirms the relevance of graphic research and the holistic view of the human being. His creations present us with an opportunity to discover the mysteries of life and a two-way purpose to return to unity.
Art, Science and Spirituality
An approach to esoteric cartography by the artists Hilma af Klint and Emma Kunz
We offer a space for individual and collective experimentation, creation and critical thinking, through artistic practices, scientific experiments from the beginning of the 20th century, Goethean observation, movement and words.
Day 1 // January 30 // The 4 Directions: Create an orientation map in the 4 directions to build the foundation of the artistic and healing process.
We will use clay modeling to create pure forms that visualize the formative forces, inspired by the platonic solids and the direction plate and pendulum that Emma Kunz used to perceive the laws of Nature and spiritual connections.
Day 2 // February 6 // Contemplation: Cultivate the art of contemplation to capture the essence of the forms of Nature and capture them through painting.
With the technique of pastel and painting, we will create prints based on the experience of Goethean observation of the plant world, inspired by the notebooks that Hilma af Klint created during her residence at the Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland, to discover geometric laws. that beat in the essence of Nature.
Day 3 // February 13 // The number: Delve into the quality of numbers and the ancient numerical wisdom, through the rhythm, the symbol and the images they reveal.
Day 4 // February 20 // Sound: Experience the qualities of the music through the eurythmic movement.
We will use structures inspired by the artisan use of the loom, to reveal the symbol that is born from the number, making visible the movement of mathematical numerical series.
Day 5 // February 27 // The form: Rescue through the living word, poetic forms that are asleep in the world of the imagination.
Listening in motion, we will discover the essence of music. We will perceive, experience and make visible the gesture that lives in music through choreographic forms.
Guest: Raphaela Fritzsch
Day 6 // March 6 // The invisible: Visualize invisible structures through scientific and artistic experiments.
Through Eurythmy, the art of movement that makes speech visible, we are going to explore the archetypal laws that govern language and that are universal in nature. Each sound of the alphabet, vowel or consonant, has an imprint that wants to manifest itself visibly in space. We will move these forms discovering their qualities through poetic examples.
Guest: Olga de Jenaro
Day 7 // March 13 // Light: Approach to the numinous sense of light.
We will take a trip to the experimental methods used by artists and scientists in the 19th century to show what lay beyond the naked eye. A laboratory that explores the flowers of the voice of Margaret Watt Hughes and the Muster Bilder of Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, to develop a series of natural diagrams.
