Anima Mundi


Anima Mundi: World soul. Although attributed to Plato, the idea already existed in even earlier cultures. It is a force permeating matter, giving shape and function to its parts and its entirety. The assumption of an organizing principle. The theory appears again in the Renaissance to stay with us – from Paracelsus to Hegel – until modern thought, as the focal point of discussions on the order of things; or the structure of contingency.

Máté Bartha’s most recent project, in which – working closely together with curator Emese Mucsi, and composer Márk Bartha – he observes urban environment as a grammatical structure.
