15.9.2017 : Tretyakov Gallery

The Tretyakov family moved from the city of Jaroslawl to Moscow in the 18th century. They were textile merchants. In 1856 P.M. Tretyakov started his private Gallery for national Russian art; in 1892 he transferred the ownership of the museum to the City of Moscow.

Due to a long-standing friendship between the Tretyakov director Sofia Petrikova-Agafonova and Prof.Dr.B.Hallier now Tretyakov is planning for March 2018 an international workshop together with M.-C. Hallier about the role of museums for underpriveledged children ( see also: YouTube Tretyakov).

20.08.2017 : Karen Blixen

Karen Blixen became globally well known in 1985 by the film "Outside of Africa" directed by Sydney Pollack and with stars like Meryl Brandauer, Robert Redford and Klaus Maria Brandauer. The film - which is based on the autobiography of Blixen - reflects in the time of Colonial British East Africa the genre of love with a tragic end.

M.-C. Hallier (www.mariechristinhallier.wordpress.com) visited during a Kenya-stay Blixen's former coffee-farm (today integrated into a Nairobi-suburb) ; being very much impressed by the building, its environment and history she summarized her feelings from the point of an art therapist (See Link : Chart Lecture). For her Blixen's books and paintings are hints that both disciplines have been at least partly self-therapy of a great lady being very unhappy.

20.07.2017 : Jam Factory Lviv

The Jam Factory Art Center/Lviv/Ukraine is establishing a contemporary art center in a former building in the UNESCO heritage city of Lviv. The vision of its founders is to shape via the JFAC a platform for local/national and international collaboration.

The building itself is a unique example of a factory built in the "fin de siecle" neo-gothic style : being first a distillery factory and within the Soviet period a jam-factory. Since 2009 artists began to use it as a work-stage and for exhibits.

10.06.2017 : Mary Bauermeister

Mary Bauermeister (born in 1934 in Frankfurt) is called in Germany "The Mother of the Fluxus Movement". Being partner of the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928 - 2007) she started in 1960 to work in a mix of events, art and music. Her atelier was visited by John Cage, Nam June Paik, Ben Patterson, Christo, Georg Brendt, the Zero Group and others. In the 60ies she met during her New York decade Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Marcel Duchamp.

Living today in Roesrath near Cologne her neighbour Prof.Dr.B.Hallier and his daughter Marie Christin Hallier (Profile) created with friends in 2014 a Foundation (Link) to support Fluxus as a holistc interdisciplinary approach of art and art therapy. The co-founder of KTG and concept-artist SAXA (Link) portraied her within his series "Seeing Faces - Reading Thoughts": the portait is a summary of quotes of Mary!
