New Media Talk No 36 | Neil van der Linden
‘The Invisible Orchestra.
Losing Sense of Space and Time.’
How initially plain Romanticist composer Richard Wagner conceived the idea of the Total Work of Art and not only revolutionised music and theatre, and aimed to change visual art, but also deeply influenced philosophy (Nietzsche) and psychology (Freud(, and even politics. And it paved the way for French impressionism in music, Debussy, and German/Austrian and Russian expressionism in music, Richard Strauss, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Schreker, Korngold, Hindemith, and even German expressionist film, Murnau, Lang, Wiene. And what are contemporary answers to his radically new but sometimes hypertrophic ideas?
Having graduated in medicine and law, Neil van der Linden is curator, programmer and matchmaker in arts in the Middle-East and North-Africa.
