05.03.2022 to 18.12.2022

The Infeld Haus der Kultur in Halbturn is showing the exhibition "Croatia: Art and Sound" with works by key figures of Croatian art from the Infeld Collection. The first in the series is the outstanding representative of Art Nouveau Vlaho Bukovac (1855-1922). He was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, was considered a prince among painters and a cosmopolitan artist who also produced 400 portraits and 150 paintings. His two female nudes, which can be seen in Halbturn, appear lively, yet delicate and fragile at the same time.

Created by laymen and of impressive quality, the works of art in the exhibition "Art & Sound" span several centuries. The objects follow a predefined iconographic pattern and are loaded with symbolism without being primarily a creative expression of the painter. They quench the viewer's thirst for the unknown.
An outstanding example are the Tibetan scroll images of religious content (so-called thangkas). Painted on linen or silk, the thematic arc spans from icons of historical personalities to the pantheon of Tibetan Buddhism to complex religious-philosophical illustrations.
