Beethoven's longing for freedom was fulfilled in his music, in his late work he broke with traditional forms, created new expressive ranges with memorable sound experiences. This is where the project begins: from sound to art.
Ten visual artists from Berlin are inspired by Beethoven's music to create new works. They transform his musical ideas into their own formal language. Sound spaces become thought landscapes of line, colour and form.An exciting process whose results are exhibited as the core of the project.
A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.
Patron: Wolfgang Thierse, former President of the Bundestag.

At the same time, a high-calibre, multidisciplinary accompanying programme with a prominent line-up is to be expected. With concerts, films, discussions, lectures and readings - to get closer to Beethoven's cosmos - his personality, his fate, his works.
