Picasso, the Legacy
Documentary by Hugues Nancy and Olivier Widmaier Picasso<
ARTE France 2013, 110 min

When Pablo Picasso died in 1973, work began on creating an inventory of the nearly unbelievable number of works in his estate: Almost 2,000 paintings, over 1,000 sculptures, thousands of ceramic objects, and countless etchings, lithographs, and drawings needed to be recorded. Records from family archives and as-yet unseen film material show how Picasso secured his posthumous fame.

Monday, September 30, 2019, 4:30 p.m.

A dialogue between theology and art history

Prof. Dr. Rainer Kampling, theologian, Free University of Berlin
