Screening of Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint

Dur. 93 minutes

Join us for a screening of this documentary film, directed by Halina Dryschka, about pioneering artist Hilma af Klint and her unprecedented work.

From the Zeitgeist films website:
‘Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.’

This film is part of the ‘Measurement, modernism and mystics’ screening programme, curated by film curator Alice Butler. The film will be introduced by Alice, who will also moderate a post-screening discussion.
