Description

Relax while experiencing a work of art. We focus on a single work whose sensual effect accompanies us into the evening. There’s no pressure to gain knowledge or to get involved; rather, empathy and dialog are encouraged. After a while we move to ZEBRA, our museum café, where we deepen the conversation and have the opportunity to get to know each other. Because art is all about exchange.

 

Cy Twombly, “Lepanto,” 2001
Twelve large-format paintings open up before us in a huge room to form an impressive panorama. “Lepanto” is the title of the cycle of paintings that confronts us as fireworks of yellow and red on aquamarine. While the depictions are abstract, the title refers to the famous naval battle of 1571. Cy Twombly first presented his version of the subject in 2001 at the Venice Art Biennale, raising awareness of it as a timeless event. Art historian Gabriele Kunkel introduces the work and discusses its background and current relevance, first in front of the pictures and afterwards in the café.
