Guggenheim: Hilma af Klint

major exhibit of abstract, spiritually-inspired art

The Guggenheim’s exhibit of the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint was the most successful in its history with over 600,000 visitors. Af Klint had an important link to Rudolf Steiner. He visited her studio in 1908 and according to her memoirs advised her to develop her own powers rather than working mediumistically. A current view sees Steiner’s advice as “the worst studio visit ever,” but Klint herself followed it, joined the Anthroposophical Society in 1920, and visited the Goetheanum several times.
Her later work was not considered in this exhibit; the main focus was on how a little-known woman painter was actually doing important abstract art, selflessly and "for the future," before the famous men...
The national magazine being human will have an article on af Klint by David Adams in its summer issue, available free at our bookstore.

Rudolf Steiner looked deeply into the contrasting spiritual cultures of “the West” and “the East” in this classic lecture series.
