The Chaotic Universe

In 1990, artists, scientists, spiritual leaders and economists gathered in the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam to explore the emerging paradigm of a holistic world view and the implications for a global economy in a seminal conference called ‘Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy’. ‘The Chaotic Universe’ is the second film in the series of recordings of the event. In this fascinating tape, composer/artist John Cage, thermodynamic physicist Ilya Prigogine, and philosopher/comparative religion teacher Huston Smith are interviewed.

In 1990, artists, scientists, spiritual leaders and economists gathered in the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam to explore the emerging paradigm of a holistic world view and the implications for a global economy. The five day conference, called Art Meets Science & Spirituality in a Changing Economy,  was inspired by the artists Joseph Beuys and Robert Filliou, and manifested by Louwrien Wijers, who called it a “mental sculpture.”

The seminal event consisted of panel dialogues by the artists, spiritual leaders and economists. The twenty panelists include artists John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Lawrence WeinerMarina Abramovic and J.C.J. Vanderheyden; spiritual leaders HH Dalai Lama, Mother Tessa Bielecki, Sogyal RinpocheHouston Smith and Raimon Panikkar; economists JK Galbraith, Stanislav Menshikov, Paul Hawken, HJ Witteveen, and Pinheiro Neto; and scientists David Bohm, Francisco Varela, Rupert Sheldrake, Karl Pribram, and Fritjof Capra.
