Want to know more about this fantastic event? Well, read on:
In the United States on tour, Mr. Ilgen has recently lectured at Stony Brook University, SBU Manhattan, on “The Artist: Pleasure, Happiness and Suffering,” introducing “Bodiness” as a new concept for whole mind/body involvement in art. He has also lectured at American University in Washington, D.C., on “The Artist: Genuine Creativity and (Cultural) Identity.”

Mr. Ilgen was born in 1956 in The Netherlands and now makes his home in Berlin. Ilgen completed studies in a variety of fields including psychology at the Royal University in Leiden, art education at the NLO ZWN in Delft, and fine arts at the Academy of Fine Art in Rotterdam, before completing his Master of Arts in sculpture and painting at the academy for Industrial Design in Eindhoven. Drawing on such influences as surrealism and constructivism, Ilgen has worked to create a unique combination of geometry and gesture in his own paintings and sculptures. He believes that developments in art, science, philosophy are closely related to each other; he describes the universal desire for art, both the desire to create art and the desire to enjoy and appreciate art, to be a natural result of our humanity.
