The Liedtke Museum /Building in the Shape of a Brain

The Liedtke Museum was built by the artist as a homage to Michelangelo in the form of a brain, who first depicted the spirit of man as God's cloak in the Sistine Chapel. According to Liedtke: "The spirit and creativity of all human beings is the protection and evolution and thus the possible security cloak of responsibility of a positive future for mankind and the world around us." This is the first time in the history of art and architecture that Liedtke has realised a building in the shape of a human brain. In addition to the exhibition rooms, his studio, a restaurant with an open-air event space, condominiums and a pool were also housed in the museum. With his exhibits, Liedtke has realised a museum in which one can live, work and mentally and physically swim in new philosophies.

The 31 Liedtke sculptures in the area around the building, which are accessible to visitors, document his creative power, which, through the works of art from whose inspiration he derived his "General Information Theory" and which revolutionised Spinoza's and Hegel's philosophical starting points into a theory and formula of the humanities and natural sciences through meta-synthesis with the equation: i = E = MC2, which also shows a possible path into the practical implementation of the design of a new society through the ethical capitalism developed by him.

"The Liedtke Museum in Port d'Andratx" In his own artistic work, Dieter Liedtke, the contemporary Leonardo da Vinci, has shaped in image and object this striving for an expanded consciousness. The path from the second to the fourth dimension, the white genes. In Andratx on Mallorca, on a steep slope, he has realised his vision of architecture in a building that respects the nature of Mallorca.
It also houses his museum."

At the request of the artist, the sculpture museum in Puerto de Andratx is not to be changed any further on the outside so that the building, as the first brain sculpture in the world in which one can live, can change the interior spaces as well as the interconnections in the brain through knowledge, but the building with its exterior sculptures remains unchanged.

In addition to the sculptures, the museum (whose studio, gastronomy and exhibition rooms are for sale) showed film art (open air on a 200-square-metre rock wall on the museum terrace), plays and live music performances from 1994 to 2018, as well as the exhibition "New Renaissance i = E = MC2" in the museum until June 2022. An art-historically important part of the exhibition will go to museums on five continents as the starting signal for a new renaissance and second enlightenment and will then be given a permanent place with over 10,000 square metres of exhibition space in the "Evolution Museum of Innovations in Art History" (original works of art from the Stone Age to the present day/through all art epochs) of the newly built Globalpeace Campus.


The assessment of the inventor-artist Dieter Walter Liedtke

Art historians describe Dieter Liedtke as a successor and new Leonardo da Vinci and locate him in the "Könnenbewusstsein" of Hegel, Joseph Beuys or Albert Einstein.

In the history of art

The positive energy of the inventor-artist and Leonardo da Vinci of contemporary art Dieter Liedtke, can be experienced by every visitor to the exhibition through the works. His works, theories and concepts are revolutionary, contagious and show the arts as well as the sciences new ways to a humane society."

"Dieter Walter Liedtke's Concrete Evolutionism opens up a new revolutionary world to the viewer. He shows how matter, which until now has only been the object and medium of artistic representation, could in turn perceive its surroundings. This information has a consciousness-expanding function."

In 1999, the German art publication with the highest circulation, Kunstzeitung, gave the activities of the artist Dieter W. Liedtke an evolutionary title. Based on the process of conducting scientific research with the help of art and philosophy, which had been lost since the Renaissance, Liedtke is the first artist in almost five centuries to achieve art and research results of the highest quality again.His anticipatory findings are documented in his artworks, books and exhibitions shortly after they are created. They regularly find confirmation in the fact that, independently of Liedtke's art and research, years later leading natural scientists in a wide variety of fields of science provided evidence for Liedtke's findings through new studies. In 2000, the neurobiologist Eric Kandel was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his research results, which were anticipated by Dieter W. Liedtke's artwork by 20 years and documented in his book: The Consciousness of Matter (published in 1982). In 2006, the researchers Andrew Fire and Craig Mello were awarded the Nobel Prize for their 1998 discovery of how information controls genes, thus confirming Dieter W. Liedtke's artwork of the 1980s in the first step: that genes and gene programmes can be switched on and off. Dieter Liedtke's works of the 1980s and 1990s go further and predict that even pure non-materialised information, art and visions can change gene programmes, genes and cells and that this change can be positively or negatively controlled. See also the books: The Consciousness of Matter, 1982, The Key to Art, 1990, art open catalogue, 2000. Artistically and philosophically, Liedtke's works open up the firmly defined, logical boundaries of today's knowledge and show ways to realise a new, more humane world. One of the most important sociologists and philosophers of the second half of the 20th century, Prof. Niklas Luhmann of the University of Bielefeld, commented in 1996: "Liedtke modifies and dissolves the framework of known theories. His new scientific theories are both the condition and the product of their own operation. One could think of an evolutionary achievement that, once invented and introduced, makes itself possible. If one transfers the result to the system of modern society, which enacts and overrides its structures through decisions, one sees a result of evolution."

In physics

""In physics, Liedtke has so far anticipated two Nobel Prizes with the contents of his works. But his theories and research results are revolutionary not only in art, but also in the natural sciences and humanities and, under the premises he has set up, paint the new picture of a universe without enigmas. The abbreviated formula for his revolutionary theory of the universe: i = E = MC2 or i = M. The path to his new theory of information as a physical quantity culminated in the conservation law of information, long sought by science; stations for this included his interpretation of the process of creation, which he painted as supernothing and opened up for physics in his theses, as well as his reinterpretations, based on intuition, of well-known scientific terms such as time, space, gravitation, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, background radiation, Big Bang, mass and energy. On the basis of his intuitive/philosophical/artistic insights, which are repeatedly illustrated in his works, he has been able to resolve paradoxes that have preoccupied science for the last hundred years.In the process, his theses have repeatedly found confirmation through scientific research.

from the scientific report on the world formula

In biological evolution research:

"The decisive question here is that of the storage of consciousness and intelligence. There is no doubt that mechanisms exist for this, even if they have hardly been scientifically investigated, let alone understood.The significance of the formulaLife + Consciousness = Artis precisely the definition of this gap in the current scientific view. This art formula, as the core of the exhibition concept of art open, not only fascinates art connoisseurs, but also contains statements of great explosiveness for natural historians. The targeted intervention and the rapid acceleration of biocultural evolution that would thus be possible would probably far outshine all the current possibilities of cloning. If we look at it closely, the art open formula "life + expansion of consciousness = art" may even describe a theoretical concept for the biocultural evolution of mankind as a whole.

In gene and epigene research

"Dear Dieter,                                                                                                                 25 May 2021.

I very much enjoyed meeting you last Saturday at your museum. My own area of expertise is the genetics and epigenetics of cancer. I am impressed by your insights into epigenetics so early when we in the field of cancer had not even considered a role for epigenetics in the development of cancer."

Prof. Dr. Rene Bernards

From Wikipedia: From 1988 to 1994 he was Assistant Professor at Harvard University. From 1992 he was head of the department of molecular carcinogenesis at the Netherlands Cancer Research Centre in Amsterdam and from 1994 professor of molecular carcinogenesis at Utrecht University. He developed new techniques in cancer diagnosis and treatment. For example, he developed a DNA micro-array technique to predict the malignancy (ability to metastasise) of breast cancers from the gene expression pattern.[1][2] He also developed a method of blocking gene expression with RNA interference[3] with application to cancer treatment.[4] In 2005 he received the Spinoza Prize. He is a member of EMBO, the Academia Europaea, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. In 2004, he received the Josephine Nefkens Prize for Cancer Research.

The art historian Dieter Ronte on the complete works:

With Liedtke, the autodidact visual artist, we learn through his many books with scientific content that he is also the autodidact scientist who explored content with a free gaze and free thinking that was only explored later by the so-called scientists and thus made it to the Nobel Prize. Liedtke lives with a special, distinct consciousness, which Jürgen Kaube describes in "Hegel's World" (Berlin, 2020) in reference to the great philosopher Hegel as "Könnensbewusstsein". Liedtke is a unique figure in the world of culture, one who continually sets new impulses.""These considerations are not unimportant for Dieter Liedtke's thinking, especially since he likes to be compared again and again with Beuys, as the new Renaissance artist (Dieter Liedtke in the footsteps of Leonardo; Welt am Sonntag 1995) as the second Beuys, who wants to revolutionise society with his art. Liedtke's formula of: Life + expansion of consciousness = art, however, is not to be understood as a restriction of artistic thinking. Art has often been restricted in its autonomous freedom by rules, such as Josef Albers with his Interaction of Colors, or the Suprematists with their Manifesto, and by the pictorial determinations of iconography, specifications of the commissioners, political specifications of an idealising realism in fascism and communism, and so on. For this reason, the history of mankind, its failures and its successes, natural and medical research play a role in Liedtke's reflections, as do many other fields of human, scientific thought. Art, as the locating of chronologically different determinations, becomes beyond the spectacular sign for the freedom of art. The formula is not a guarantee for making art, but for understanding art." " Liedtke's formula is a binary formula and it is reminiscent, especially in the artist's intelligent graphic version, of the formula of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, the correctness of which is proven again and again and long after it has been formulated, because formula carries future in itself and does not see itself as the conclusion of thought. Through the works of art, it incorporates the realities of the past as well as those of the present and the future, which will contribute to the broader understanding of a work of art and free it from its ties to the present. Liedtke's formula is an extension of human thought and understanding. It does not formulate a prescription for art, but rather conveys a better way of dealing with art. Just as he deals with the open questions about the future of our society in his works, he also deals with the riddles of the monuments of our cultural history in his series of artworks and uncovers lost and unknown aspects of knowledge that decades later find their confirmation through archaeological and neurobiological and epigenetic research and can give us answers and suggestions for solutions to a better and ethical future development. In summary, he derives guidelines and actions from a view of the past and the future for the first attempt to create a Gesamtkunstwerk "New World", which he presents in the exhibition "New Renaissance". Therefore, in the overall view of our social development, he is interested in older art from the deepest past. Like Bauer, Liedtke fights the fatal tendency to suppress diversity of meaning. Liedtke's credo: "The dissolution of the limitations of art and art history or consciousness through art."

The philosopher Niklas Luhmann

"Dieter Liedtke's insights and artworks require the construction of an observer, namely God, for whom time is present as the totality of all moments in time."
