Art Without Death: Russian Cosmism
'What is more immortal than the idea of eternal life? Russian Cosmism around Protected content nothing less than an overcoming of death.' - With these words the organisers of an art exhibition followed by a conference on Russian Cosmism invite us to participate.
Russian cosmism is a philosophical and cultural movement that emerged in Russia in the early 20th century. It entailed a broad theory of natural philosophy, combining elements of religion and ethics with a history and philosophy of the origin, evolution and future existence of the cosmos and humankind. It combined elements from both Eastern and Western philosophic traditions as well as from the Russian Orthodox Church.
Many ideas of the Russian cosmists were later developed by those in the transhumanist movement. Victor Skumin argues that the Culture of Health will play an important role in the creation of a human spiritual society into the Solar System.
Though I grew up in the Eastern part of Europe where ideology was very much influenced by the Russian cultural heritage, the ideas of cosmism were not loudly discussed and now I am very excited to have the opportunity for a deeper inside in the discourse.
The activity here is for the exhibition opening on Thu, 31 Aug, 7pm. For the conference scheduled for Friday (September 1st) and Saturday (September 2nd), you need to register on your own via e-mail to Protected content
