Hearing colours - painting sounds


May 15, 2022, 2pm — 3.30pm

nitsch museum, Mistelbach, AT

painting from the painting action "Walküre", Bayreuther Festival 2021

The sensitization of the five senses represents an important component in Nitsch’s oeuvre. Particular attention is paid to synaesthetic perception, i.e. the interplay of several senses, which is what makes the experience of his Gesamtkunstwerk possible in the first place.

Does each of us have the gift of synaesthesia, this very special combination of several senses? Can it be learned? The Wagner admirer Nitsch let the music of the Valkyrie become colours, thus colours and sounds became one.

After visiting the exhibition in the nitsch museum and experiencing the paintings in the flesh, we will transform our musical perception into painting in the studio.

From 6 to max. 15 participants.
Participation fee: € 18.00 per person. Registration absolutely necessary: anmeldung@nitschmuseum.at
