Flowers Forever

Flowers in Art and Culture
February 3–August 27, 2023

With their splendor and diversity flowers have always captivated us. They possess great symbolic power – whether in mythology, religion, art or politics. In earlier centuries, flowers were coveted status symbols, today they are traded globally as a mass product. Currently, the flower is coming into focus as a fragile yet indispensable component of our global eco-system.
With objects from art, design, fashion and natural science, Flowers Forever offers a fascinating, elaborately staged tour through the cultural history of flowers from antiquity to the present day.

The exhibition forms part of the city-wide Flower Power Festival Munich 2023.

The Myth of Spain

Ignácio Zuloaga (1870–1945)
September 15, 2023–February 4, 2024

More than almost any other artist, Ignacio Zuloaga single-handedly shaped the way Spain was viewed by the world at the dawn of the twentieth century: During his lifetime, he achieved international fame for his depictions of proud toreros and vivacious flamenco dancers, the simple life of the rural population, ascetics and penitents against the backdrop of vast, barren landscapes, beggars, little persons, and witches, echoing the artistic legacy of Diego Velázquez and Francisco de Goya. In an era of massive industrialization and Spain’s increasing orientation toward European modernism, Zuloaga sought to preserve the “Spanish soul” with these scenes. For the first time in Germany, the Kunsthalle München is turning the spotlight onto this painter, virtually unknown here, with a large monographic exhibition, which will afterwards be shown at Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg.
