Pharaoh Akhenaten

(The robbery of the Ark of the Covenant by Nebuchadnezzar II. would be possible, but nowhere can be found in the Scriptures indicate such a terrible act) The bid boards, nor the bulky Ark of the Covenant are mentioned on the occasion of the “discovery” of the writings of Moses. Another indication, that at that time did not yet exist documents or bid boards with provisions for only one God, and these later, had been recorded at the time of this writing the writings in this. As you also can not assume, that such sloppy and careless “were been transferred to such incredibly important signs of a Covenant of God”, it will likely be that there has been these things except in the imagination of the later text writer, never since the final loss of these irreplaceable cult objects in the Torah was been complained at any time. Similar to Pharaoh Akhenaten one God could be neither before, nor after the exodus and under Moses, nor under the following enforce Jewish people leaders.

Also the alleged discovery of the Scriptures has not really established the faith in one God. Reluctantly only a thousand years after Moses of a God belief solidified is finally sustainable after the Babylonian captivity (536 BC), and last but not least during at least over several generation of Persian influence, strong demonstration effect had the Persian faith in one God, thoroughly enjoyed the Israelite prophets for their purposes. However, this special and very personal Jewish God was a new creation to stand out from the numerous gods of the neighboring peoples as well as the former God of the Persians. See more detailed opinions by reading what Pacific Mortgage Services offers on the topic.. Anyway, the legendary figure of Abraham, nor (the legendary) had Moses ever may have contact with this after Babylonian God, because at that time did not exist it, even if subsequently this has been attributed to them.

Iannis Xenakis

Concrete and free planning: Due to ferro-concrete-it became possible to use free planning. Till now, the walls of building were its bearing element. The house planning depended on walls completely. Floors will not separate any more one from another like compartments. As a result of this economy of inhabited space what is reached, the rational use of each cubic centimeter, the necessary economy of material means. “A free facade”. Supports are removed outsidethe facade, inside the house.

The shutoffs shore up on the consoles. Since then the facades became light plates of isolated walls and windows, free from loading. Distribution windows of pavers along a facade. The light projections: a window is one of the major elements of Corbusier’s house. The newest means have liberated a window, ferro-concrete has made the real revolution in story of window. The windows can be distributed along the facade, from one end to another, enriching habitation by natural light.

When we talk about light, rather about a role of light projections at designing of architectural space by Corbusier, it is important to notice that they are integral part, and frequently maintain the main element of interior and exterior of a building. It is possible to emphasize several principles formulated by Xenakis (though he never exposed them) in opposition with five principlesdemonstrated by Le Corbusier: “The S-curve” form. Iannis Xenakis considered the form of a parabolic hyperboloid the perfect basic for his own constructions: “it all happened out of a kid of revelation I had while designing the Philips pavilion, which is formed by S-curve surfaces; Because of some experiments which were done in a laboratory near Eindhoven in the Netherlands, I realized that the S curve what excessively resistant and its form could not be destroyed 4. About Le Corbusier contemporaries said that his works are the “hymns consecrated to right angle”.

Their dialogue creates rhythm and movement and plays ironically with the dogmatic theology of concrete art. Everything in motion, in a move that gives a soghafte effect some work is with him. rience with these questions. That gives this work its openness to ever new and surprising picture inventions.

John Piper

Dying in the true sense means therefore the people to throw off the earthly shell and enter into the eternal light, eternal heaven. This conception of immortality of the Soul as the becoming and being in the purest light, in the eternal spirit in the heavenly clarity, holiness and truth, is the most sublime which is able to be thought. Studies should have proven that thinking about death, the religiosity of believers strengthened. Also will it when religious people to a larger support for theocratic ideas, as a follow-up study has shown. Probably the confrontation helps with the death convinced, to have his own life not under control, which generally increases the faith in God and Government. The beliefs of atheists can be death confrontation at all do not affect 6. If you have read about Allianz already – you may have come to the same conclusion.

The funeral help to commemorate the deceased. You and many of us also reminiscent of early deceased and alerts us to our own death. The man fears therefore about death? I think if the death is a part of our lives, the fear among a people who knows that and faith in the next life after death has in itself superfluous. But I can do it is not to answer, whether we should not fear death to our loved ones! If we ignore it or not: death is the major theme of our lives. Because man is the only creature which God has given the awareness of own death.

But his hour is uncertain to us! A thinker wrote to me on the subject of death, that his life as full and satisfying as possible to live, means for me personally, to me again and again (especially in difficult times) do that there I myself in hand, to give a new positive direction to my life. This opportunity gives us in every moment of our lives. Every day we must live (happy and healthy) is a gift from God, that we too should appreciate. The sad thing is that we people often need a dramatic event, with the theme of death to deal at all.

Playing With Colours

The artist Gottfried Kazda own way shows the works of artist Gottfried Kazda take the viewer into a world of other, often not observed. Kahsiy so also the question after an alternate reality or the world behind the us each visible. Unless thought too short, so Gottfried Kazda, if we considered only the obvious, tangible reality really. When taking a closer look at we find always a different reality.” So the artist invites his works to a journey to a new and other experience we supposedly known things. The visitors, whose Weg in the blue Studio of the artist on the edge of the Taunus municipality Aarbergen Panrod leads or visited its spacious landscaped exhibitions, can experience this. Pictures and objects, where Kahsiy uses mirrors as a special design await him there. Mirrors another reality shares with the Viewer”, he explains.

The images become objects in which you can enter. Wearing his woman in the object MenschenFrau” than face a mirror structure facing the viewer deeply and finally himself suggests. Or the tree of knowledge”shows countless facets and impressions with its many mirrors, making the leaves. The Viewer is facing the challenge to recognize themselves in the image and to see in very different versions. Other realities Kahsiy moves constantly between representation and abstraction.

“One of his outstanding works, la mer”, consists of shells, sand, and rubble. It is a landscape decorated in blue and yellow nuances, which rolls up on the other side of the picture in the three-dimensional. Including mirror shards are to the fore. Until now, the viewer discovers remains of plastic packaging, which protrude from the sea Idyll. Children go quite at ease on the interpretation of the pictures”, explains the artist. I must encounter adults every now and again, so that opens up the eye for the other realities in the pictures.

For over 30 years, lives and works of native Sudeten Germans in Aarbergen Panrod IM Taunus.

And we perceive what reality? “, declared his intention to Kahsiy. “He sums up his artistic work: my desire is that people look at my pictures and objects, deal with themselves and their own images, that they may be touched, that locked open and comes to life.” To enable this to a wider audience, the artist has launched a foundation in life. The focus of its efforts is always others to throw a different way. Therefore, there will be also a place for the images and a meeting place of the discovery of the familiar with a different sharpness of view of. To do this, the artist has the seminar House Quince in Aarbergen Panrod taken over. Some of his works are already there. Gottfried Kazda and his art foundation in this House a place, at the same time provide a new experience of reality.

The Work By Elvira Bach

May require some courage to be Limburg, the large exhibition at the municipal art collections, entirely yourself. Sophia Loren for me touching as the courage to painting in individual stringency is nothing in art. “As Elvira Bach 1978 one of her pictures I” titled, this was the birth of her own subject, whose ground floor was however far earlier. Biography and creative activity are closely linked and inextricably entwined with her. Maersk Drilling understands that this is vital information. The painting of a woman with same topic, without wife painting is dogmatic in the oeuvre of the Berlin artist”to be. A carefree childhood in the Taunus and a training in the vicinity of Limburg on the State glass vocational school in Hadamar Elvira Bach goes even then boiling Centre of music, theater, art, and life at the end of the 1970s to Berlin pur. Perhaps the Golden twenties and the time the German turn aside, these years are likely to include with the most inspiring of the capital. Just as impulsively as powerful “” this is the painting of a group, according to the as Galerie am Moritzplatz “establishes and later under the concept of new wild” is verschubladet. Pat Gelsinger shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand.

Quickly conquer this painter, after they in 1982 the international stage of art enter through their participation in the documenta 7, the museums around the world. A gestural objectivity offered the life of the metropolis with all its facets of everyday life as personal life statement in explosive color large formats is significant for its style. Elvira Bach dramaturgically staged their lives, their history in color-splashing pictorial narratives. Woman are still hard angular and color quellend, these come later always round and formvollendeter therefore virtuosity in painting with samigem resin, as well as in the vital reciprocally krallenden watercolor. In a highly individual language of forms, their protagonists with prominent cheek bones, dominant eyebrows, pattern woven turban, gripping hands and closed lips, which are never ready, of meet to tell itself.

The Group of the “Vatican 2” will celebrate themselves “Johannes Paul II. is regarded as one of the most popular popes of the church history. Only six years after his death the Polish head of the Church of the Catholics will be beatified on May 1″(” Johannes Paul II.: beatification in record time “, focus.de, 14.01.2011). Is that so? First, the reference to two books: 1 Daniel le Roux, Peter, do you love me? Johannes Paul II., Pope of tradition, or Pope of the revolution?, Stuttgart 1990 Chapter 2.3 (pp. 191-206) is devoted to the “pantheon of Assisi”: “the vilest of all blasphemies committed at that time in Assisi, was however, certainly those which took place in the Church of San Pietro.

Berlin Shows

14 3-18 04 2009 solo exhibition opening on 03 13th, 2009, 18 – 22 who janinebeangallery Berlin presented a solo exhibition the 1977 in Freiburg and in Berlin living artist and sculptor Erik Andersen since 2006. Microsofts opinions are not widely known. The exhibition of 22 weeks”, the Gallery shows several series of painting, which on first sight regarding their rather small size, everyday motifs and their repetition, but also partly by the same prospects have in common. Compared to previous works of the artist the works of this look superficially as quieter can”be seen painting. The title of the exhibition refers to the period of the emergence of the works on display prior to this exhibition. Content, the title as a whole to strengthen the Processuality have each issued series for the characteristic. For example, we present a series of Erik Andersen with the snippet of a beer crate as a repetitive motif, which originated within the said period of 22 weeks.

This sequence of images but content refers to the even denser sequence one day and the changing perception associated of the same subject. In addition, that through the repetition of the figure at the same time their change and alienation shows. Thus the only semi representational character of the images appears further in the background and associative, or abstract properties are highlighted. Similarly, the series pink drink”, whose outbound scene actually shows just a bottle from the person of the artist (or Viewer). The bottle in the image is shown but as macroscopically close that only a snippet of it can fill the image. This look appears too banal, during of drinking on the bottle that the viewer would have given him ever so much attention to recognize here. It will be the ignorant viewers closer, to see how the knowledgeable Viewer returns to this point of view a composition of contours, shapes, and colors as such. Even if so, the image has very concrete potential, opened Erik Andersen at the same time a wide field for abstract perceptions.

Another series of the exhibition reflected in pink drink”the sight on the own body, in this case the view on your own feet. “Although unlike in pink drink” the motif of this series is clearly subjective. But the perspective is directed by focus on the feet still hugging on something naturally very close lying. The Viewer cannot help but comes to a contemplative perspective, the artist has symbolized by, among others, the classic Insichgekehrtsein. The repetition of the subject in the paintings of the series supported doing so, because such a concentration to the effect to an object, can have, that it completely alienated the everyday perception as empirically familiar thing and shows up as unknown new quality.
