Group Tour: Max Beckmann. The World as a Stage
Feb. 24 – June 10, 2018

From the early 1920s to his death in 1950, Max Beckmann’s work was characterized by motifs dealing with performers: Vaudeville and fun fair acts, acrobats, clowns, and actors. His powerful art remains as relevant today as it was at the time he created it. Beckmann’s paintings convey the fundamental experience of modern times and prompt each individual viewer to question the figures and examine his or her own role in the theater of life.
The tour presents an overview of the exhibition and illustrates central aspects using selected works as examples.

Workshop with tour: Max Beckmann. Welttheater
Feb. 24 – June 10, 2018

From the early 1920s to his death in 1950, Max Beckmann’s work was characterized by motifs dealing with performers: Vaudeville and fun fair acts, acrobats, clowns, and actors. His powerful art remains as relevant today as it was at the time he created it. Beckmann’s paintings convey the fundamental experience of modern times and prompt each individual viewer to question the figures and select which role they will play in the theater of life.
In the hands-on studio workshop that follows the tour we will reproduce motifs and techniques used in the original works to create our own pieces.

An important part of the collection at the Museum Barberini are paintings by East German artists. One of the most famous artists was Wolfgang Mattheuer, whose work allows us to engage with the art of the past and the present.

Duration 50 min.
Maximum group size 20
