    (HQ) THE LIVING ROOM nachman of breslav, moses maimonides, gestalt dreamwork, and the death of robert wepner. (75 minutes) this video, THE LIVING ROOM, is dedicated to the memory of my brother robert wepner, who died august 16, 2011 of "septic shock" infection caused by negligent hygiene care at a hospital and nursing home in jerusalem, israel. robert was a cripple due to unsuccessful hip surgeries, and hence needed to wear a diaper and rely upon attendants to change the diaper and bathe him. this trust was betrayed, leading to a series of urinary tract infections which eventually generalized to a fatal septic shock infection. robert began his life with a glorious high school athletics career, followed by several years as a successful high school physical education teacher. but beginning in the 1960's robert turned to amphetamines ("speed"), "rush", scientology, over the counter mood drugs and pain killers, all in an effort to live a speeded up, larger than life, "painless", illusionary life - until gradually this house of cards collapsed and robert spent the last 30 years of his life living with our parents, in and out of depression. if you do not deal with the reality of the situation, then the reality of the situation will deal with you. in his wild joyride seeking to evade superficial everyday reality, robert could not help turning out to be a paradigm case of a deeper holistic reality, another saint genet. paradoxically, while his real life options faded, robert's artistic skills blossomed forth, and in the manner of van gogh, robert left us a series of paintings which mirrors the stages of his tortured, manic/depressive quest. with the wisdom of hindsight i believe that sibling rivalry with me played no small part in my brother's tailspin. in this video i have combined (1) my own mourning for my brother, (2) gestalt dreamwork on a dream about robert, (3) robert's paintings as a major part of the visual track, (4) various musical fragments from apple's "logic" software, (5) maimonides' theory of prophecy, and (6) nachman of breslav's vision of himself as the messianic figure of his generation (tsaddik ha-dor) who by his own life action encompasses and redeems the souls of his disciples. putting it all together, i come up with a sense of myself as the "tsaddik ha-dor" of my own extended family, an extended family which with the help of the internet includes anyone who happens to see this video. the underlying philosophical foundation is dialectical, and the dreamwork helped me to organize all the material according to traditional theories of human action associated with plato (anamnesis), aristotle (final cause), stanislavski (superobjective), leibniz (monadology), and gestalt therapy (the existential message of the dream). the title of this video, THE LIVING ROOM, has two references. first a literal one. the dream about robert happens in the living room of the house in long beach, new york, in which robert and i grew up. second, the dreamwork about death and mourning paradoxically turns out to be a celebration of life at the end of days, the messianic now. i discover that the existential message of the dreamwork is an explosion into authentic joy, as my power of selection ferrets out from the raw material enough here and now associative links to culminate in an encompassing vision of how the coming of the messiah feels phenomenologically like a gloriously joyous family reunion. the little living room of our home in long beach, new york, in the 1950's explodes into a prophetic vision of the messianic end of days fifty years later, here and now in september 2011. this process precisely illustrates the process of associative links that nachman of breslav uses as the basis of his "likutei moharan" ("collected essays"). nachman wrote: "my torah is completely associations" (hebrew: behinot). this video, likewise, is completely behinot. nachman, as tsaddik ha-dor, wants to teach us that through this sort of inductive style thinking we have the hope of encompassing all reality in idealistic visions of redemption. of course, a hitler, a marx, an ahmadinejad, or even a franklyn wepner, can pervert this process, and so we need to keep our eye on the road when we take a ride in ezekiel's chariot.

          Guarda un estratto su http://www.digitaleplay.net/dp/02-van-gogh-e-la-forza-del-colore-flavio-caroli/ Nei quadri di Van Gogh si rimane immediatamente colpiti dal colore che, vorticosamente steso con pennellate corpose e definite, conferisce alla figura una intensa carica espressiva e passionale. Tutta la suo opera è volta all’espressione dei sentimenti e riflette, attraverso il colore, le emozioni che l’artista prova di fronte al mondo. Nelle sue tele, la materia, la gestualità e il segno sono portati al massimo della tensione e dell’energia vitale. Per Van Gogh pittura e vita sono una cosa sola: i suoi dipinti diventano lo specchio tragico della sua esistenza. Questi, insieme a tanti altri sono i motivi che rendono Van Gogh un rivoluzionario e che gli attribuiscono un posto decisivo nella storia dell’arte occidentale. Capiremo insieme la sua opera con l’autorevole guida dello storico dell’arte Flavio Caroli. CONTENUTI 1. Prologo 2. Tra religione e natura - Due contadine che vangano 3. Una vita dentro l'arte 4. Raccontare la dignità umana - I mangiatori di patate 5. Un'età di cambiamenti 6. Uno stile impressionante - Autoritratto con cappello 7. L'alchimia della mente - Ritratto di Père Tanguy 8. L'arte giapponese in Francia 9. Una nuova verità - I girasoli 10. Dalla rappresentazione all'espressione - Il caffè di notte 11. Van Gogh e Gauguin 12. Un sentimento devastante - La notte stellata 13. La pittura diventa simbolo - La camera di Van Gogh ad Arles 14. Nell'infinità dello spazio - Strada con cipresso sotto il cielo stellato 15.

              from Leo de Boer / Added

              In the early years of the last century, Helene Kröller-Müller was one of the richest women in the Netherlands. But all her money could not fulfill her greatest desire: to be with the man she loved. Sam van Deventer who was 20 years younger than her. Instead Helene aimed her great passion on art, resulting in one of the greatest art-collections - Helene can be seen as the woman who discovered Van Gogh - and the high-ranking Kröller-Müller Museum in the east of Holland. Her 'flight' into the arts also allowed Helene to keep in touch with her beloved Sam. In one her many letters to him Helene describes Van Goghs sunflowers as 'flames reaching out to a fiery moon full of desire to draw it close to their burning heart...' 'This museum is born out of grief', Helene wrote. Almost a century later, her grief still resonates. Helene's passion for art and for van Gogh in particular and her complicated relationship with Sam van Deventer, her family and her husband Anton Kröller make up a compelling story of love and art.
