Gustav Klimt: Up close and Personal at the Leopold Museum - from 24 February to 11 June 2012

Images, letters, Insights

Klimt’s major work „Death and Life“ created in 1910 and overworked in 1915 as well as a range of other important paintings and over a hundred drawings by Gustav Klimt are held by the Leopold Museum. Furthermore a big part of the Emilie Flöge estate, containing hundreds of postcards, photographs and letters written by Gustav Klimt for over two decades to his partner in life Emilie Flöge, are part of the Leopold collection. Among them there are art cards designed by the Wiener Werkstätte, tube mail, telegrams as well as a manifold correspondence, that Klimt conducted with his friends and family in Vienna while enjoying his seasonal summer retreat at the Salzkammergut, at the Attersee and in Gastein or during his journeys that led him all across Europe to Italy, Paris, Bruxelles and London. By Klimt‘s impressions one can gain insight into a personal view of the artist on arts, everyday life, his fears, joys and worries.On the occasion of the Klimt-year 2012 the Leopold Museum takes the postcards and correspondences to the centre stage of an exhibition for the very first time and focuses mainly on Klimt’s journeys. At the same time the showing invites the public to take a time journey that leads through life and work of the artist and highlights Klimt’s most important artistic and private life situations.

Victor Horta revisited! Symposium at the Belgian Comic Strip Center - 3 December 2011

 While Horta has acquired an international reputation in the 1900s and is responsible for the spread of Art Nouveau in Europe, it is only long after the demolition of the People's House in 1965 and the creation of the Maison Horta in 1969 that the art of building and living was highlighted. Since then, various organizations, authors, private owners, curators and architects have done a remarkable job of fighting for the preservation, disclosure, restoration, reconstruction, and especially the partial redeployment of his unique work. Important actors will speak at the symposium, which will conclude with a discussion. Are involved in this issue, among others (to be confirmed): Jos Vandenbreeden (Archives of Architecture Sint-Lukas), Arlette Clauwers (Korei), Françoise Aubry (Horta Museum), Michael Gilbert (owner of Horta houses), Arno Weltens (Stichting behoud Nederlandse architectuur Jugendstil), Barbara Van der Wee (architect), Jeanine Lambrecht (VUB), Dirk Van de Vijver (Utrecht University) and Jan van Kasteren, Jasmijn Mooren, Teun Bonenkamp (Junior League of Utrecht University).
