Exhibition’s history

In the year 1952 the Archive's staff began to organise a yearly, thematic summer- exhibition displaying original documents and materials.
In 1961, during the commemoration of Rudolf Steiner’s 100th birthday, the Städtische Kunstkammer Strauhof  in Zurich, in cooperation with the Rudolf Steiner Estate Administration, showed an exhibition focused on Rudolf Steiner’s literary and artistic legacy.

In the legendary exhibition «Der Hang zum Gesamtkunstwerk» (1983) the curator Harald Szeemann honoured Rudolf Steiner’s significance for the artistic Avantgarde at the beginning of the 20th century.

In the Summer of 1992 Rudolf Steiner's blackboard-drawings were shown for the first time in the Gallery Monika Sprüth in Cologne, Germany. Since then, they have been shown in a variety of exhibitions in some of the most important museums of the world.
In 2011 the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, organised the first retrospective dedicated to Rudolf Steiner’s vast work.
54 of Rudolf Steiner's blackboard-drawings were exhibited at the Venice Biennale 2013  International Art Exhibition — Il Palazzo Enciclopedico.

Every year the Rudolf Steiner Archive lends Rudolf Steiner‘s blackboards to museums around the world.
