Dr. Thomas Föhl - art-historical classification

Letter of interest

Dieter Walter Liedtke asked me to prepare an expert opinion for the public and the media from an art historical point of view for his works, the exhibition Part I and Part II "art open código universo - The theory of everything i = E = MC2" as well as the significance of his entire oeuvre for art and society.

Art-historical classification of the works and concept as regards the aforementioned exhibitions by Dieter Walter Liedtke.

For decades Dieter Walter Liedtke has been known as an uncomfortable, contemporary avant-garde artist in the art scene, who dares to bridge the gap between art and the public through a new enlightenment within the framework of the art open exhibitions. Dieter Liedtke works as an inventor, writer, architect, visual artist, researcher, philosopher and art theorist who founded the art movement Concrete Evolutionism in the 1970s and presented it in his book The Consciousness of Matter in 1982.

Under the term Concrete Evolutionism, he summarizes the artists and works of art that continue an evolution of human consciousness and consciously abolish previous cultural, religious and cognitive boundaries and allow the population to participate in this abolition and thus in the future let all people in a creative, open, global society participate in it.

Internationally renowned art historians, curators and art critics are of the opinion that his numerous inventions, researches and innovative works of art make him comparable to Leonardo da Vinci.

Dieter Liedtke on this:

You can not limit that to me - everyone is the new Da Vinci -

I have studied the Leonardo da Vinci comparison and the complete works of Dieter Liedtke on the newly planned exhibitions from an art historical perspective.

In contrast to Leonardo da Vinci, Dieter Liedtke decodes not only his own works, but for the first time all works of art and art movements with the help of the graphic art open / código universo art formula he developed in 1988, which he has published in many books. Under the patronage of the Spanish Queen Sofia, the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Michael Gorbatschow and the Minister of the Federal Republic Dr. Norbert Blüm, he organized the art open art exhibition (1999 in Essen Germany on 23,000 square meters of exhibition space) with the world premiere The Evolution of Art from the Stone Age until today on the basis of museum loans with more than 1000 original works of art using his formula as curator.

The art open art exhibition of innovations and their evolution in art has generated over 1 billion TV, radio and print media contacts in Germany.

The experiences from the art open art exhibition in Essen have encouraged him to continue his intensive research with his works in connection with the formula.

In his works until 2007 he apparently succeeded in applying the incomprehensible formula for innovations (or creations) in art, to which he gave the extended name: art open / codigo universo, to social evolution, our future and to all creation processes in the universe as well as to a possible creator, and to answer numerous questions of our existence anew.

His works of art can be divided into five cycles. The works for research:

  1. Art
  2. Physics and Astrophysics
  3. Eternal Life
  4. A possible peace between the religions
  5. The Creation Principle

His works are created according to the laws of quantum mechanics. They connect, and this is a novelty in art history, the microcosm with Plato's world of ideas, intuitions and (materialized) information, as well as what Liedtke calls non-materialized information, and with the macrocosm in order to consciously awaken research and come to new solutions for the future.

The revolutionary statements and innovations manifested in his works as well as the intuitive choice of materials and the evolutionary inaccuracy of technology, which is similar to quantum physics.

This is produced either in accuracy or indeterminacy with the same experimental arrangement (the work of art) by the recipient, physically by not observing the art process or by not measuring, and shows on the one hand the inaccuracy, the indeterminacy of the material and the technique, on the other hand the same works (and also here the same results arise as in quantum physics) justify very precise, new statements, theories and formulas and the decades before the research in the humanities and natural sciences dealt with it and found comparable results.

The innovative insights and concepts from his work result in a new theory about nature, matter, genes, man, politics, societies, religions, and the universe, and bring forth behind the laws of nature a principle of creation inherent in everything, which he makes visible in his works of art.

His ability to gain new knowledge through his works by doing research through the intuitive creation of his works and by combining the results in the fields of art, philosophy, medicine, sociology, society, economy, theology, physics to a new picture, to a revolutionary theory of everything. This has never existed before in the history of fine art.

Years later, scientists received Nobel Prizes (15 to date) for the new theories or parts of them that emerged from the works of art, without having had any knowledge of Liedtke and his works. These independent research results of the Nobel Laureates and their studies also confirm the scientific validity of his works of art. His creative process, how he came to this knowledge through art, has historically given art a new meaning and direction. How the anticipation of research results is and was possible over decades still has to be scientifically examined in detail.

Important scientists, art historians and exhibition organizers have worked together with Dieter Liedtke for years and certify that Liedtke's works are (r) evolutionary, of unique art-historically high quality. Their explanations prove that his works and new theories in art and culture show a completely new weighting as well as a transparent overall context for the evolution of man as a whole. Through the innovative power of the formula and the findings from his works of art, as well as through the encouragement of the scientists working with him, Liedtke has developed five intuitive series of works of art for the social systems of the future and combined them into his Gesamtkunstwerk i = E = MC2 as New World.

Part I

The art exhibition: The theory of everything i = E = MC2. The exhibition is conceived in five interlocking sections, covering 1,000 to 4,000 square meters of exhibition space with over 500 works, all of which are deciphered as information and creation through his formula.

The exhibition areas are structured as follows:

  1. The art formula - What is art?
  2. Globalpeace - Peace between Religions
  3. aimeim - Eternal life through information
  4. Information - The Basis of the Universe / The Theory of Everything
  5. Information - The Principle of Creation

The exhibition part II

The extension and transfer of the exhibition to the society with the art action.

Taking shape

Dieter Walter Liedtke founded three public limited companies in order to be able to start the second renaissance and to provide part of the financing for this. One each in Spain, Ireland and the USA, to which he transferred works of art and books and to which he donated the entire proceeds from the sale of the transferred works to finance the establishment of the companies.

In order to win comrades-in-arms for a New World, Dieter Liedtke gives away a large part of the shares of the three companies to the knowledgeable and supporters as well as to the visitors of the art exhibitions: art open código universo - The theory of everything i = E = MC2, who receive a free share with their admission ticket to an exhibition and thus participate in the profits of one of the three companies.

Having arrived at the above art historical assessment of Dieter Liedtke's works, I hereby declare my serious interest in the exhibition:

art open código universo - i = E = MC2

to support various museums at home and abroad and to act as art historical advisor for the exhibitions.
