Kandinsky Symposium, University of Leiden

Centenary and Impact of Kandinsky’s "Über das Geistige in der Kunst”, Symposium, University of Leiden, 2012

Introduction

The groundbreaking book ‘Über das Geistige in der Kunst. Insbesondere in der Malerei’ was written by the Russian artist Vasily Kandinsky. It was published in 1912, by R. Piper Verlag & Co in Munich, the city where its author was living at the time of publication.(1) It received acclaim overnight. A second enlarged and third edition followed a couple of months later, still in 1912. Kandinsky’s book inspired artists as well as art historians and museum professionals to explore the theme of the spiritual in art for themselves, and to create their own art, interpretations and exhibitions on the very same theme.
