Where Does Der Blaue Reiter Go?
150th Anniversary of V. Kandinsky.
Heritage and Inheritants: Wassily Kandinsky and Art-Brut
(Part 1)

Abstract. W. Kandinsky is one of the proficient artist of the 21st century, a theorist and the founder of abstract expressionism. Being inspired by ideas of Russian philosophy and the Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk, he developed the idea of art synthesis, universal law of spirituality and harmony. His heritage and ideas on spirituality are still significant, existing even in directions, rejecting official culture, such as art-brut. One of the most famous Spanish artists Miquel Barceló implemented Kandinsky’s ideas, having crossed the line of primitivism of art-brut. His famous projects involve Majorca Cathedral's Chapel and the Palace of Nations (Geneva).

Keywords: art, abstract art, synthesis, spirituality, Gesamtkunstwerk, expressionism, naïve art, art-brut, heritage
