Water in Myth and Nature
3 June - 21 August 2005
For the first time, the Kunsthalle will be presenting an interdisciplinary exhibition. The theme will revolve around the element water. The project’s main focus will be in the visual arts area, however an additional coming to grips with the subject matter will be offered within the range of the exhibition, which will go beyond individual historico-cultural aspects. Water-related motifs have changed over the centuries. From the wealth of material, five sections will be established into which important masterpieces of a particular era will be incorporated. These works will include paintings from Max Beckmann, Arnold Böcklin, Canaletto, Lukas Cranach, Caspar David Friedrich, David Hockney and many others.
Additional enquiries within the scientific, economic, technological and political sectors will also be explored in cooperation with the Technische Universität München, Deutsches Museum, Munich Re Group and the Bavarian State Office for Water Management. More...
