Event Details

Following the successful exhibitions VAN GOGH.ALIVE 2015 and HIERONYMUS BOSCH.VISONS ALIVE 2016/2017 the new multimedia show FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY.VISIONS ALIVE is yet another spectacular production up to take place in Berlin. The exhibition covers an area of about 1,000 sqm and presents the works of 16 most reputable masters of modernism in a unique combination of animated video projections going along with appropriate music:
Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Gaugin, Henri Rousseau, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Gustav Klimt, Paul Signac, Piet Mondrian, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent Van Gogh, Pierre August Renoir, Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Edward Munch, Vasily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich,
they all were searching for new visual forms to capture the tremendous upheavals of their time characterized by the industrial revolution, political overthrows and wars. Their deliberate rejection of the styles of the past unfolded in new art movements like expressionism, abstract art, surrealism, and suprematism.
Modernist’s paintings often contain secret details, hidden from our eyes making us wander around it. They open the source of sense in the places where the tradition only sees chaos and nonsense. The paintings easily get their new lives with the help of digital technologies because a hundred years ago the art of modernists was the first glimpse of the technological future. A spectacular journey to the revolutionary art of the 19th/20th century with razor sharp HD projections on huge screens and music in Dolby Surround are giving you absolutely new perspectives on art.
The running time of the show is 60 minutes; the continuous loop video runs non-stop
