After university or work, we invite you to a stimulating hour at Museum Brandhorst. On each occasion, we invite people from different social backgrounds to come and look at a work of art from a very personal and more or less unusual perspective. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the focus is on a shared exchange of views in front of the works, which can be continued in the Café im Zebra with music and drinks, as desired.
Today Anna Beke is our guest. As a dance educator and curator, she explores the aesthetic possibilities of the human body, repeatedly placing them in different interdisciplinary contexts and thus creating new approaches. In the exhibition “Future Bodies from a Recent Past,” she is particularly moved by a sculpture by Polish sculptor Alina Szapocznikow: “Sandstone, quartz, cement—limestone, ash, dust. The sculpture ‘Pnąca’ (1959), translated as ‘The Climber,’ touches and fascinates me in many ways: the seemingly fragile contrasts sharply with the rough material. The figure disguises itself in the garb of abstraction and yet contains so much that is concrete. Inscribed in it seems the tragic fate of the artist, of which she herself revealed so little to the public and of which her work of art speaks all the more strongly for it: bodies that became ashes. Bodies that became stone—the past erased meets the supposedly eternal. Life in torpor. Szapocznikow’s reality. Szapocznikow’s view of the world?” (Anna Beke)
