The great evolution

German (Germany)

Fritz Schranz has created an autonomous world for himself in an old parsonage in Upper Bavaria, which he calls a "monastery for modern art and philosophy". In the 1960s, things were anything but monastic there. The former parsonage quickly established itself as a meeting point for those who were searching for meaning, expression and consciousness-expanding experiences. Among them, the actress Hanna Schygulla, the top model Veruschka and her mother Gottliebe Lehndorff, who lived with Fritz Schranz until her death. Even at the age of 85, the artist, philosopher and priest, Schranz remained true to himself and his credo: "Just as everyone is an artist, everyone is a philosopher and a priest. It is our duty to explore the question of how to communicate the world’s mystery."
