FOR ART IS DAUGTHER OF FREEDOM
BIENNALE AUSTRIA association presents from April 8 – April 28, 2017 at Galerija AB, ul. Viteska 22, 742050 Maglaj, Bosnia & Herzegovina on occasion of the exhibition „For the art is a daughter of freedom“ positions from 9 artists from Belgium, Germany, Ireland, USA and Austria on Friedrich Schiller’s Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man, 1795, 2nd Letter.
In this exhibition, both the „call for freedom“ as a basic necessity, the environmental impact of „freedom without conscience“, the „struggle for freedom“ and its invisible scars which arise from the question of how far art is free from dubious, from the past adopted legal provisions.
Another aspect is how far a valiant, personal extension of the reality of art can be freed from the limitations of the self-transformation of the individual to the existential basis of life of self-determination.
How far Friedrich Schiller’s letters on the aesthetic education of man are even today of the utmost importance, are shown by the current cultural-socio-political events.
