NOUMENA: MUSIC OF THE SPHERES

Since the 90s of XXc philosophers and art historians were looking for a term to describe the era after postmodernism, and while the term “anthropocene” became one of them, in terms of cultural production we are experiencing a new type of romanticism: return to feminine, mysticism, magic, nature and spirituality. The occult and magical are re-appearing throughout different art mediums possibly as an answer to our increasingly materialistic world.
In the spirit of this paradigm shift NOUMENA #magic & #shamanism art series encompasses works focused on ritual, ancient pagan cults, shamanic traditions, witchcraft, occult, esoteric gnosis, folk magic, as well as psychedelic experiences, astrology, magical intents, narratives derived from mythology & religions, and magical and symbolic languages.
Plato described the role of an artist as the one who translates the meanings of the cosmic consciousness for the rest of us. In a similar manner the Shamanese, Xwaay or Shaman, are the go-between medium, revealing the will of the divine and connecting the tribe with its vital force. Today’s artists can be perceived as traditional shamans possessing the power of accelerating humanity’s evolution in consciousness.
In pre-Kantian philosophy “Platonic Ideas and Forms” are described as NOUMENA, and phenomena are things displaying themselves to the senses. In this event NOUMENA: MUSIC OF THE SPHERES we invite you to explore the IDEAL somehow unknowable WORLD with a group of musicians, poets and performance artists whose work carries on spiritual traditions.
