Kunst

Kunst verbindet Menschen. Kunst ist Ausdruck einer expressiven Schaffenskraft und das Bedürfnis, sich mitzuteilen.

Deshalb suchen wir den Künstler/die Künstlerin in der Bevölkerung und veranstalten einen Wettbewerb.

"Jeder ist ein Künstler", sagte Joseph Beuys. Hatte er damit recht? Wir wissen es nicht. Ueber Kunst kann man stundenlang philosophieren, endlos diskutieren.

Bei Kunst stossen wir an unsere Grenzen. Sie drückt etwas aus, was nicht gesagt werden kann oder darf. Kunst überwindet Sprache, Raum und Zeit und wechselt ihre Erscheinungsform; von real zu virtuell.

Eine Definition für Kunst haben wir nicht. Johannes Dörflinger erschafft sie lieber.
