In progress

In 1964 Marshall McLuhan described the artist as the only person with complete and intact awareness, as the only person who can amend the relationship of the senses to one another before another assault of technology numbs conscious processes, as the only person who is aware of today’s natural environment, while, at the same time, writing an elaborate narrative about the future.
One of these prophets - HA Schult has integrated life into art.

In Willy Brandt’s State of the Nation Address on 18 January 1973 we were prompted to create a climate in which open mindedness for artists could grow. “Art can certainly more strongly affect the quality of our environment.”

Taking another step means observing the relationship between being involved with art and active life, without bias, in your socio-political and social commitment and then to take action.

Since HA Schult has set himself the task of making us more conscious of everyday objects by tearing them out of their normal circumstances and putting them in front of us – it would be quite incomprehensible, if we did not take him up on his offer.

Klaus Ravens, Federal Minister of Land Use Planning, Urban Development and Building, 1974
