Visions Alive – From Monet to Kandinsky is a multimedia show taking place at the moment at Alte Munze in Berlin, presenting the work of 16 well-known modernist painters and artists in a unique combination of animated video projections going along with appropriate music
Visions Alive is also exploring the way technology can influence the way we perceive art, and why not, learn to appreciate it more. By reframing art and presenting it to the public in a different light, even those who are not big fans of art could actually enjoy an experience that might seem daunting at first.
It is fascinating and even exhilarating to see how 2D paintings become alive, and how Edgar Degas’ ballerinas start dancing on all the walls surrounding you. Or how Edward Munch’s angst gets translated into a visually haunting experience, making you understand a little better his work.
It may very well be that none of these painters ever imagined that one day we will look at their work in 3D, the way Visions Alive is doing it. But we shouldn’t limit ourselves to view art confined to museums and galleries, and accept that art can be ever evolving and that there should always be room for a dialogue between us and the artists. Maybe the exhibition at Alte Munze is not necessarily a novelty, but it is definitely a journey worth taking.
The running time of the show is 60 minutes; the continuous loop video runs non-stop.
