Rudolf de Lippe – Learning from Birds, 2009

The soaring up of flocks of birds is only one of the countless gestures in which moving orders of nature reveal themselves. The concert of mutual resonances and reaction cannot be planned or reconstructed retrospectively. The images create spaces of moving events. We experience something comparable when people come together successfully.
Rudolf de Lippe hopes that the effect of these gestures will inspire attention for related observations; that the desire to follow such orders and to respect them in our dealings with form of life may be strengthened; that the imagination may feel called upon to seek other orders in the relationships of society, the designs of future cities, the cooperation of forms of knowledge, and many other fields.

We mourn our friend and benefactor, the artist and philosopher Prince Rudolf zur Lippe, who died on 6 September 2019.

He made thoughts dance and people move.

During the exhibition in Erfurt, which shows works from the cycle "Learning from the Birds" in the church of the Augustinian monastery, he wanted to talk to us about it and how it is linked to Goethe and Alexander von Humboldt.

We will miss him greatly, not only there.
