Geisterkäfige / Ghost cages


Da ist der Wunsch nach Freiheit, aber aus welchem Gefängnis denn? Die Käfige, in denen wir gehalten sind, kann man nicht sehen. Jedes Mal, wenn wir – meist unbewusst – glauben, frei zu sein wäre nicht möglich, bildet genau das den Käfig …

Da ist der Wunsch nach Freude, doch Freude ist unser Grundzustand, unser Name, unser Sein. Was zwischen uns und unserer Freude ist, lässt sich mit den Sinnen nicht erfahren. Jedes Mal, wenn wir – meist aus Gewohnheit – annehmen, wir hätten es ja nicht besser verdient, wird Freude verschleiert …

Die Trennung von dem, was wir wirklich wollen, sind unbewusste Annahmen. Unsichtbar, weil so gewohnt. Mächtig, weil nicht gesehen.
Bewusstsein ist kein Luxus, den man in Meditationen erlernt, um in andere Sphären zu gelangen. Es ist der Schlüssel, der die Geisterkäfige öffnet. Es begleitet unsere Schritte und hält die Öffnung aufrecht, in dem, was ist …


There is the desire for freedom, but from what prison? One can not see the cages in which we are held. Every time we think – mostly unconsciously – that being free is not possible, that’s exactly what builds the cage …

Autor: Briant Rokyta

Briant Rokyta is an Austrian artist based in Vienna. He follows the principle of PERMANENT CREATION in performance, drawing, painting, writing and sculpting and in providing lectures and workshops. PERMANENT CREATION is another way of viewing the world. Not through the rational mind but through art, through being, which is constantly creating itself: Each moment is creation and oneself is intimate part of it. Human society is also changing, a new level of relatedness arises and the age of separation is sinking. I find it helpful and joyful to use art in such a way to support this process in favor of a world that is more beautiful, integrative and playful. The best way of doing so is to show this potential of art, in various garments and as a way of life together with fellow artists. For further information please check out:
