Gravitationsfeld Beethoven (Gravitational field Beethoven)

A project in the series "Art and Sound" for the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven

The attraction of Beethoven's music has been preserved over time and generations, up to the present day. Adored and loved by millions, it belongs to the global cultural memory of mankind. A gravitational field for composers, poets, painters, writers and philosophers who have studied the impact of Beethoven's works.

Address
Galerie Forum Amalienpark

Breite Straße 2A 13187  Berlin


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.

Participating artists:

  • Jens Becker
  • Claudio d'Ambrosio
  • Martin Enderlein
  • Dieter Goltzsche
  • Sabina Grzimek
  • Annette Gundermann
  • Matthias Heidenreich
  • Doris Leue
  • Henry Stöcker
  • Christian Ulrich

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.
