‘FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY’ is a unique and technologically advanced multimedia exhibition that made a successful debut back in 2017 whilst in Berlin, attracting over 60,000 visitors in what was considered by many art enthusiasts a huge success. It’s so impressive that the exhibition in Berlin received an overwhelmingly positive response from visitors – so positive that they decided to extend the exhibition until 2018.

Masters of Modernists
This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to view works of Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Henri Rousseau, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Gustav Klimt, Paul Signac, Piet Mondrian, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Edvard Munch, Kazimir Malevich, and Wassily Kandinsky.
What makes these masters of modernism unique is that they created their own worlds during the most turbulent of times. Between reality and what was painted on the canvas started to fade away. For instance, Paul Gauguin’s works are really the reflection of the master’s inner attitude with his dreams intertwined with the myths of the peoples of Oceania. Whereas Gustav Klimt’s female images are full of erotism that fade in decorative splendour. Kazimir Malevich, also the ideologist of suprematism, believed that pure art consists of objectless pictures. Through schematism, Wassily Kandinsky revealed the power to evoke free associations. Each masterpiece has a story to tell.
Expect to time-travel back to the 19th Century and early 20th century when society faced political upheaval, wars, and the industrial revolution brought new technology and inventions. During this time, the new art movement, termed “Modernism” was born, and the instability and chaotic changes were all captured in abstract art, surrealism, expressionism, and impressionism.
This 26-week exhibition will allow you to deeply understand and learn more about the art and creative sides of these incredible and historic artists. Visitors can attend workshops, talks by leading national and international scholars and experts as well as enjoy dance and musical performances.
