Exchange of Ideas
Our Journal is inspired by the Socratic paradox and Questioning.
We have no single right answers, but multiple perspectives.
Our ArtAge™ Academy wants to promote dialogues to create meaning and arrive at answers without one side winning the argument.
OUR ArtAge™ STORY
In the very beginning of everything there was only our Earth, a planet awakening to life.
But Art was already there shaped as rocks and stones, formations of ice, lava, Nature.
Later when humans were coming they tried to create their own art, in the beginning still deeply rooted in Nature, but later developing more and more independently.
Today this line goes towards some kind of an artificial art. But nevertheless, great art works are still created in the same way as Nature does. An organic flow of natural ideas, fantasy, creativity and empathy.
This is what we mean with our ArtAge™ story.
It is not dependent of any art market but on the condition of human.
Under Journal we communicate issues or topics which we are working with and ideas we proof.
For the first period we have the following issues:
Can an amazing artefact of Nature as Ayers Rock in Australia become accepted by human?
We look at First Nation art practices and ask the question if and how art can become a beholder protecting and looking after The Land.
- What is the difference between monumantal land art and iron ore mining in Australia or brown coal opencast mining in Europe?
- What was the purpose of the great Moai sculptures on the Easter Islands, the Stone ships in the North, the Inuksuk stone sculptures of the Inuit?
- The art market of the future - vision or illusion?
Art is not existing for ever, only as long as there is need for.
Can you imagine an artist of 2050? What will his CV look like? An art work?

“ What I do not know I do not think I know.” Socrates
(c. 470 – 399 BC)
Socrates was a classical Greek philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy.
He is also credited as being the first moral philosopher of the Western ethical tradition of thought.
The rock is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks. It is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. It lies 335 km south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs.
Ayers Rock is sacred to the Aboriginal people of the area, and it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
First Nations are ethnic groups who are the original or earliest known inhabitants of an area. First Nations are in contrast to groups that have settled, occupied or colonized the area more recently.
First Nations are also known in some regions as Aboriginal peoples, First peoples, or Native peoples.
Groups are usually described as first nations when they maintain traditions or other aspects of an early culture that is associated with a given region.
Moai are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island in eastern Polynesia between the years 1250 and 1500.
Almost all moai have overly large heads three-eighths the size of the whole statue. The moai are chiefly the living faces of deified ancestors.
The statues still gazed inland across their clan lands when Europeans first visited the island in 1722.
The stone ship or ship setting was an early burial custom in Scandinavia, Northern Germany and the Baltic states.
The grave or cremation burial was surrounded by slabs or stones in the shape of a ship. The ships vary in size and were erected from c. 1000 BC to 1000 AD..
An inuksuk is a manmade stone landmark or cairn built for use by the Inuit, Iñupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. These structures are found in northern Canada, Greenland, and Alaska.
The inuksuk may historically have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, etc. Varying in shape and size, the inuksuit have ancient roots in Inuit culture.
Historically, the most common types of inuksuk are built with stone placed upon stone. The size of some inuksuit suggest that the construction was often a communal effort.
