About the product

The Russian artists Wassily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich were among the pioneers of abstract art, exploring the geometric vocabulary over the course of their careers. In connection with the natural sciences, cosmology, art history and religion, they developed their own mythology and art theory. Artists like Kandinsky or Malevich sought possibilities for how the invisible, the transcendent or the spiritual might be represented, and in doing so created a non-figurative painting style that is based on the relationship between color and form.

This project, entitled “Über das Geistige in der Kunst: 100 Jahre nach Kandinsky und Malewitsch” (“On the Spiritual in Art: 100 Years after Kandinsky and Malevich”) and organized in cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für christliche Kunst e. V. in Munich and the Museum of Concrete Art in Ingolstadt, takes a look at the emergence of Concrete Art, on the one hand, and the question of spirituality on the other. The exhibitions taking place in parallel in Munich and Ingolstadt present works by contemporary artists who draw associations from the artistic movements of the early 20th century.
