The Goetheanum on TV

Last year, the Goetheanum Communications Department made the work at the Goetheanum accessible via 173 videos and 100 livestreams on the portal

The livestreams were live broadcasts of lectures and panel discussions from conferences at the Goetheanum. The other videos were recordings of conferences, interviews, reports, or documentation of artistic work. Excerpts were prepared from this wealth of images and spoken words and published on networks such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, or X, which increased awareness of the Goetheanum’s activities and the diversity of people, work topics, and perspectives involved.

As of December 18 (original publication of this article in the German issue), the portal’s content had been viewed a total of 15,695 hours. The portal was visited 138,000 times by 117,000 individual visitors. They accessed 450,000 pages. More than 6,000 people have set up a free account on the portal, and the number of subscriptions for premium access rose to 740 over the course of the year.

The portal enables anyone, from anywhere in the world, to open a window to the Goetheanum and gain knowledge about what is happening there. This new possibility gives the Goetheanum a new, larger radius of impact. This is where the words “tele” (Gk. tele, at a distance) and “vision”, that is, TV or television, come into play. The weekly production of videos is currently in German and English. In a few cases, content has also been published in Spanish, French, and other languages. The service will be further expanded in 2024. With one year of experience, the project is still in its infancy and needs support to consolidate and strengthen itself for the future.
