Sesame, open!

 

Isa Genzken is one of the most important contemporary artists and she is surprising the viewer in each of her works anew. Particular attention is given to Isa Genzken in her frequently fragile and fleeting works on materiality and deconstructivism. For her exhibition at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the artist created a number of new works, which she presented skillfully with older works in the open space. This airiness in the presentation allowed a direct discourse between the viewer and the object.

 

This film will show the artist during the set up of her exhibition at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. With very rare interviews! For curators, museums and exhibitions only!

Lyonel Feininger

 

The New York-born German-American painter Lyonel Charles Adrian Feininger (1871-1956) is one of the most important painters of the modern age. His painting style, which is often characterized by dream-distorted perspectives, places Feininger close to cubism. Feininger himself defined his style as prismism. His love for music and his partial late-romantic style made him a lyricist and poem among 20th-century painters.
