ABOUT THIS ARTWORK: A.P.POLO - LAO TSE 1984_18.ZYKLUS 2.EPOCHE
A.P.Polo - "Lao Tse 1984_18.Zyklus 2. Epoche" - Hamburg-Winterhude (Germany) - Photography/Mixed Media/Digital Art - The original photographs were taken at the underground station Borgweg in Hamburg-Winterhude (Germany) and included camera surveillance, trees and architectural glass and steel elements. Afterwards it was manipulated with software. The subway station Borgweg is a stop of the Hamburg subway line U3 in the district Winterhude. The station abbreviation is BO. It was used daily by about 14,200 passengers (Mon-Fri) in 2017.
The station is located in the intersection directly south of the Hamburg City Park. The facility has a 90-metre-long central platform, the only access to which is on the east side. Stairs and an elevator lead into the access building.
The station was originally opened in 1912 as part of the circular line (today U3). The access building erected at that time did not survive the Second World War, so a new building had to be erected in 1953. This was completely renovated in the course of a renovation of the entire facility in 1994. During the renovation, the station was also given a new, transparent platform roof and was barrier-free, whereby the needs of the visually impaired were particularly taken into account when designing the surfaces. There are several facilities for the visually impaired in the surrounding area.
During the war, especially during the Gomorrha nights in the summer of 1943, a large part of the railway network and rolling stock was considerably damaged or completely destroyed. Most of the buildings could be rebuilt until 1950, the fleet was complete again in 1953. In China, besides the Gregorian calendar, there is the Chinese calendar, which belongs to the most complicated calendar systems: It combines three different systems - a Lunisolar- and a solar calendar and a cyclic calendar structure (a cycle is a cycle). In addition to the division into lunar months, the solar year is divided into 24 half months on the basis of the most accurate mathematical calculations - the orientation at these 24 year stations is still important today for traditional agriculture in China.
Furthermore it contains important cycles: namely by the combination of the so-called "ten celestial tribes" (these refer to the Chinese doctrine of the five elements and that of Yin and Yang), the "twelve earth branches" (they correspond to the Chinese zodiac) and the cycle of 60-er units - the calculations result in a cycle of 60 years each. Again 60 cycles, which corresponds to 3,600 years, form an epoch. The Chinese calendar does not have a constant year counting - originally the epochs were marked by the combination of the year names. Since the Ming Dynasty in the 14th century, the name of the deceased emperor has been added for better comprehensibility. The calendar begins in 2636 BC - according to legend, Emperor Huang Di invented the Chinese calendar this year. For the counting of the years, which takes place only with the Lunisolar calendar, a method is used, which is already used at the time of the Han dynasty, thus 2,000 years ago. According to the Chinese calendar the 18th cycle of the 2nd epoch began with the year 1984 of our calculation of time - that means the altogether 78th cycle. Since the original photos that I used for this work were taken at the Borgweg underground station, including the camera surveillance on site, the title for this work resulted from the fact that, from my personal point of view, an "old" Chinese man is in the center of the work. Taoism or Daoism is a philosophical or religious tradition of Chinese origin which emphasises living in harmony with the Tao (literally: the Way, also romanised as Dao). The Tao is a fundamental idea in most Chinese philosophical schools; in Taoism, however, it denotes the principle that is the source, pattern and substance of everything that exists. Taoism differs from Confucianism by not emphasising rigid rituals and social order, but is similar in the sense that it is a teaching about the various disciplines for achieving "perfection" by becoming one with the unplanned rhythms of the universe called "the way" or "dao". Taoist ethics vary depending on the particular school, but in general tend to emphasise wu wei (action without intention), "naturalness", simplicity, spontaneity, and the Three Treasures: "compassion", "frugality", and "humility".
The roots of Taoism go back at least to the 4th century BCE. Early Taoism drew its cosmological notions from the School of Yinyang (Naturalists), and was deeply influenced by one of the oldest texts of Chinese culture, the I Ching, which expounds a philosophical system about how to keep human behaviour in accordance with the alternating cycles of nature. The "Legalist" Shen Buhai (c. 400 – c. 337 BCE) may also have been a major influence, expounding a realpolitik of wu wei. The Tao Te Ching, a compact book containing teachings attributed to Laozi (in german Lao Tse), is widely considered the keystone work of the Taoist tradition, together with the later writings of Zhuangzi.
Taoism has had a profound influence on Chinese culture in the course of the centuries, and Taoists (dàoshi, "masters of the Tao"), a title traditionally attributed only to the clergy and not to their lay followers, usually take care to note distinction between their ritual tradition and the practices of Chinese folk religion and non-Taoist vernacular ritual orders, which are often mistakenly identified as pertaining to Taoism. Chinese alchemy (especially neidan), Chinese astrology, Chan (Zen) Buddhism, several martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine, feng shui, and many styles of qigong have been intertwined with Taoism throughout history. Beyond China, Taoism also had influence on surrounding societies in Asia.
Today, the Taoist tradition is one of the five religious doctrines officially recognised in the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) as well as the Republic of China (ROC), and although it does not travel readily from its East Asian roots, it claims adherents in a number of societies, in particular in Hong Kong, Macau, and in Southeast Asia.
