Talk
Magnificent Display: Religious and Secular Power in Early Modern Europe
Monday, September 30, 2019, 4:30 p.m.

A dialogue between theology and art history

During the time of the Counter-Reformation, both the church and Europe’s absolutist rulers used paintings as a visual manifestation of their power and magnificence. With their theatrical scenes, exalted style and sensuous themes, baroque compositions appealed to viewers’ emotions.

The Catholic theologian Rainer Kampling and the art historian Eberhard König will discuss whether the artworks shown in our exhibition Baroque Pathways: The National Galleries Barberini Corsini in Rome still have the same effect today.

With
Prof. Dr. Rainer Kampling, theologian, Free University of Berlin
Prof. Dr. Eberhard König, art historian, Free University of Berlin

To Rome with Love
Dir. Woody Allen, starring Woody Allen, Roberto Benigni, and Penélope Cruz, Italy/USA 2012, German dubbed version, 112 min.
In four separate vignettes set against the picturesque backdrop of the Italian capital, this film interweaves a series of unlikely encounters and events: A funeral director has the voice of a star tenor, but only under the shower, a man wakes up to find he has become a celebrity overnight for no explicable reason. In this entertaining homage to Rome, Woody Allen has brought together a cast of stars including Penélope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, and Roberto Benigni.

Roma
Dir. Federico Fellini, starring Peter Gonzales, Fiona Florence, Marcello Mastroianni, Italy 1972, German dubbed version, 119 min.
Fellini’s very personal portrait of the Italian capital shows a city permeated by energy and vitality but also by ruin and decay. This intricately layered film weaves together childhood memories and Rome’s present. In its final sequence, the camera captures a long motorcycle ride through the night past the city’s famous monuments.

La grande bellezza The Great Beauty
Dir. Paolo Sorrentino, starring Toni Servillo, Carlo Verdone, Sabrina Ferilli, Italy 2014, Italian with German subtitles, 141 min.
Jep, a jaded society novelist turned journalist whose literary fame is fading, celebrates his sixty-fifth birthday on the terrace of his apartment overlooking the Colosseum and the roofs of Rome. His guests are aging members of the culturati, whose vain, self-obsessed hedonism Jep observes from a critical distance. Yet he himself is an important part of this great drama.

With its breathtaking camera-work and rapturous score, Paolo Sorentino’s homage to Federico Fellini weaves a never-ending string of dinner parties and glamorous escapades of shallow beauty into a cinematic masterpiece.

Saturday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.
