Event overview

Dr. Matthias Weniger of the Bavarian National Museum (BNM) discusses the question of if and what connects contemporary and historical art, and if such connections exist, to what extent older masters influence younger ones. The dialogue is divided into two parts and begins at Haus der Kunst with El Anatsui's large, hanging sculptures, and continues in the Bavarian National Museum with not much smaller sculptures and textiles, which are equally impressive. Explored themes include questions of contemporary and earlier workmanship, materials, motives, functions and influences.

Without registration. The public guided tours last 60-90 minutes.

You get the reduced ticket of 8 € at Haus der Kunst; at the Bavarian National Museum the entry is 7 €.
