The exhibition as a Gesamtkunstwerk
"From Monet to Kandinsky" consists of 16 short films mainly devoted to the art of each master, projected to 7-metre-large screens, placed at different angles in two multimedia rooms. The loop of 63 minutes is an original and holistic work of art immersing the visitor into the world created by each master. The projections are changing from one to another, coming to life and moving in the rhythm of music and capturing the viewer into the flood of colors and sounds. Around 1500 works from over 20 museums worldwide have been processed for this exhibition.
