There is more imagination in theology than you might think, and in art you find more traces of God than you might suspect. That is the discovery of media artist and theologian Arent Weevers. For him, art and theology are the two bosoms of one heart. Weevers’ internationally acclaimed interactive installations, 2D and 3D stereoscopic and holographic artworks reflect this journey of discovery. In this book they are discussed in a special way by connoisseurs and critics, and by Weevers himself.
Musings provides a deepening and extremely personal insight into the work and motivations of a human-oriented and transcendent-oriented artist.
The book consists of ten chapters on ten works of art. Prof. dr. dr. Aaron Rosen, an American specialist in the field of art and religion, kicks off with a foreword. The chapters are made up of four short articles: an expert’s consideration of a work of art, the ‘how and why’ a particular work of art was created and thematic articles related to the work, such as: care for nature, physicality, suffering, painful beauty, desire, sources of inspiration, relationships and death.
An American English version of this book will also be published in 2022 entitled Musings, About Art, Body and Religion.
