Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy - Pt. 5 - The Shifting Paradigm| 50mins
Director: Louwrien Wijers | Producer: Foundation Asset
Focus Years: 1990 | Country: Netherlands
Artists, scientists, spiritual leaders and economists gathered in Amsterdam in 1990 to explore the emerging paradigm of a holistic world view and the implications for a global economy. The five day conference, Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy was inspired by the artists Joseph Beuys and Robert Filliou, and manifested by Louwrien Wijers, who called it a "mental sculpture."
This film, part five of the series, features physicist Fritjof Capra speaking of the paradigm shift towards a systematic worldview; Hindu scholar and Catholic priest Raimon Panikkar discussing socio-economics, art, science, religion, and beauty; and performance artist Marina Abramovic explaining her investigation of physical limits and mental potentials.
Among the topics discussed at the conference are ecological sustainability, the existential fear of change, the role of creativity in a new perception of reality, and the patterns that connect.
