Radical Beauty

20191112_105859

In einer Welt, in der nur von Leistung und Funktion geträumt wird, braucht es den radikalen Gestaltungswillen Schönheit bedingungslos ins Zentrum zu rücken. Sich nicht – wie die Mehrheit – angstbesetzt selbst an den Nutzen zu versklaven, sondern provokant den Müßiggang vorzuziehen und im Schönen zu verweilen …

Die Erkenntnis, dass wir zu abgründigster Schrecklichkeit fähig sind, verhindert scheinbar, uns dem Schönen zuzuwenden. Wir empfinden es unbewusst als heuchlerisch oder denken es nicht zu verdienen. Es ist scheinbar nur möglich, Schönheit in einen Nichtraum zu verbannen – zusammen mit Ehrfurcht, Wahrheit und Majestät – den realistische Menschen nur belächeln können …

Für Menschen, die sich dennoch dem Schönen zuwenden, wäre es angebracht eigene Schönheitsoasen zu entwickeln und sich kompromisslos daran zu orientieren, weil die Gesellschaft mit aller Kraft in eine andere Richtung zieht.
Wir brauchen eine Kultur die aus der Schönheit kommt …

In a world that dreams only of achievment and function, the radical creative will to beauty needs to be unconditionally placed at the centre. Not to anxiously enslave ourselves – like the majority does – to profit and gain, but provocatively prefer idleness and linger in beauty …

The realization that we are capable of the most abysmal horror seems to prevent us from turning to the beautiful. We unconsciously perceive it as hypocritical or think we don’t deserve it. It is apparently only possible to ban beauty to a nonspace – together with awe, truth and majesty – which realistic people can only smile at.

For people who nevertheless turn to beauty, it would be appropriate to develop their own beauty oases and to orient themselves uncompromisingly to them, because society is moving with all its strength in another direction.
We need a culture that comes from beauty …

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.
