Rudolf Steiner the Artist
Saturday 22 October 7pm
with Stefan Hasler, Leader of the Section for Performing Arts at the Goetheanum, Switzerland. Rudolf Steiner’s early education in Austria and his studies at Vienna’s leading technical university gave him a sound and respected scientific education. In Vienna he sought the company of the leading thinkers of the day including poets and philosophers. Then, in Weimar he edited Goethe’s scientific writings. With this wide-ranging knowledge why did he then become an artist at the age of 40? What motivated him to extend his work into the domain of art from then on? Why does anthroposophy need a strong connection and experience of art and what does this mean for our own spiritual striving?
Stefan Hasler grew up on Lake Constance and trained as a pianist, conductor and eurythmist. He worked at the Waldorf School Hamburg-Wandsbek, then at the eurythmy school and eurythmy stage in Hamburg and became professor at the Alanus Hochschule. Since 2015 he has been Head of the Department of Performing Arts Section of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum, Switzerland.
