The "Congress for Biological Hygiene" in Hamburg in 1912 presented the "scientific" results of life reform studies to a broad audience for the first time.

"Fidus designed the poster for [the] congress ..., where he also delighted listeners with a slide lecture on his art of 'rising life.' His poster shows a 'Nordic' man in the process of breaking his bonds and rising up to the stars."  Berlinische Galerie, Museum für Moderne Kunst.
