«Farbe fasziniert – als Phänomen zwischen physikalischen Bedingungen und seelischer Wirkung. Aus Anlass des 200-jährigen Jubiläums der Goetheschen Farbenlehre bietet dieses Buch in einer Reihe von Aufsätzen physikalische, künstlerische und philosophische Sichten auf dieses zentrale Werk Goethes und seiner Nachwirkungen bis heute. Es weckt immer wieder aufs Neue das Interesse von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern und Philosophen und regt zu Diskussionen an. Das Buch ist zugleich eine Dokumentation der Ausstellung „Experiment FARBE“, die erstmals im Sommer 2010 am Goetheanum in Dornach (Schweiz) und später an weiteren Orten gezeigt wurde.»

« … A generation later, finding myself newly based in Järna and reflecting how Järna could be enlivened in summer 2011, I came across a major exhibition called “Experiment Farbe” (Experiment Colour) at the Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland in summer 2010. The initiative to the event had arisen from the fact that it was 200 years since the publication of Goethe’s book “Theory of Colours”. Goethe’s work around colour has not lost any of its relevance during these 200 years and it is today acknowledged as a classic, due to its clear explanations and its multidisciplinary and phenomenological approach to the subject. A group of enthusiasts, Matthias Rang, Nora Löbe and others, achieved magnificent results in designing and constructing the exhibition, which was designed as a touring exhibition. Thus was the idea born to bring “Experiment Colour” to Järna, and how wonderful: it took simply one phone call to get an overall “lets do it” from the curators. …»  Rembert Biemond im Vorwort.

«Under the title SEE! COLOUR!, Ytterjärna, situated south of Stockholm, has become the stage for four parallel exhibitions spread out over 10 locations around the entire campus of Kulturcentrum Järna. The “culturescape” SEE! COLOUR! is intentionally placed both indoors and outdoors – celebrating colour in nature, architecture, art and science.

The large installations by James Turrell primarily challenge the senses and perception. “Beyond colour” has become the title of the exhibition with works by hilma af Klint. Af Klint, not Kandinsky deserves, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung1 the title ‘first abstract painter’. Rudolf Steiner, a highly influential figure for the founding fathers of Järna is present with original blackboard drawings – two of them specifically on the theme of colour.

Experiment Colour is the title of the exhibition, which teaches about colour based on the Theory of Colours by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, an exhibition originally made in Dornach, Switzerland for the 200-year anniversary of Goethe’s Theory of Colours. …

… The first essay is written by Matthias Rang, the chief curator of the Experiment Colour exhibition. Matthias Rang has created a number of sensational new experiments based on and inspired by Goethe’s Theory of Colours, but taking it one step further. …

… Thereafter follows an essay by Johannes Kühl that takes the reader on a journey through Goethe’s life, exploring the starting point of the scientific work in his biography. ….»  Rembert Biemond im Vorwort.
