Virtual Cinema: Beyond the Visible: Hilma AF Klint
Friday, May 22 - Thursday, June 4
From Zeitgeist Films. Available to screen for five days upon purchase. —- Before Kandinsky, Mondrian, and Klee made a name for abstraction in visual art, another artist had already beat them to their discovery. Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) painted her first abstract canvas in 1906, four years before Kandinsky, thought to be the movement’s pioneer. This absorbing documentary explores how such an exceptional woman could be erased from the art world for over a century, written out by an industry dominated by the idea of male “genius.” Af Klint did not exhibit during her lifetime, but a recent retrospective broke the Guggenheim Museum’s sixty-year attendance record, suggesting that the world may finally be ready to rewrite history. In English, German, Swedish with subtitles. 2019.
