    EVOLUTION SCULPTED: The Capitals of the First Goetheanum

The Theme of the Year of the General Anthroposophical Society for 2009-
2010 centers on evolution, metamorphosis, development: themes central to
Rudolf Steiner’s work and fundamental to anthroposophy. Whether in
descriptions of human and world evolution, developmental processes from birth
into adulthood, or simply built into the seven-fold process by which a thought is
developed in a single text, the theme is ubiquitous in both content and form.
From an artistic point of view, the forms of the seven column capitals which
Rudolf Steiner designed for the first Goetheanum building are perhaps the
most concrete, succinct, visible expression of these living laws underlying
evolutionary processes. The goal of this workshop will be to work together to
create all seven at once, in a proportion of 1:4 to the original Goetheanum
building, sculpting a process of evolution in time in a powerfully unified space.
