The Ludwig Museum offers a new programme that combines Modern art appreciation and Chinese Qigong meditation. Every third Wednesday of the month, participants have the opportunity to meditatively experience works of art in the Ludwig Museum through still and moving techniques of Qigong.
The contemplation of art traditionally has a connection to mediation. Whether Buddhist meditations on images or immersion in a Christian devotional painting, art invites us to immerse ourselves in its forms, colours and structures. We approach works by Isabelle Cornaro and other artists through Chinese meditation exercises from Qigong.
The class begins with a short introduction to the artist and her work, which is the focus of the class. This is followed by moving qigong exercises to prepare the body for standing and walking meditation exercises through which selected abstract artworks from the special exhibition and collection are experienced. At the end, we let the hour come to an end with green tea.
Dates: Every third Wednesday of the month, 5:30 p.m. to approx. 6:30 p.m.
