The Polish artist Pawel Althamer is known for his participatory way of working. Many of his installations and sculptures are created in collaboration with other people. Pawel Althamer is convinced that art can initiate a real change in the social situation. This conviction is also borne out of a deep spirituality, which understands creativity as an expression of a cosmic spiritual connection.
A good example of how he works is the 'Cosmic Order' exhibition at the Lentos Museum in Linz in Austria.
