Art and Literature

Karl König began something like a social 'Gesamtkunstwerk', the art of living together.


By creating the community in Camphill Karl Koenig not only inaugurated a path of practise in social art but also began something like a social "Gesamtkunstwerk". All arts were to be included into everyday life in the community. Their various therapeutic possibilities were also to be included. Life was meant to penetrated in all details in an artistic way.

An Inner Journey Through the Year – Imagiative Drawings for the Soul Calendar

Karl König meditated intensely on the 52 weekly verses of Rudolf Steiner's Calendar of the Soul. During his time in internment on the Isle of Man, he made these 52 naïve, artistic sketches to accompany each verse. This is a wonderful way to experience an important spiritual tool.
