This autumn, Friends of the Museum get the chance to enjoy an exclusive new course within our programme Art Routes. Walking through the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection.
Entering and Leaving the Frame explores the different possible ways to view each period by studying particular works of art in our permanent collection. We move away from the traditional way of looking at paintings defined by perspectives, and instead we introduce the idea of movement and the temporary and corporeal nature of painting, which make the single point of view of the spectator obsolete. Paintings within paintings, maps, mirrors, windows and doors all open to uncertain places; or curtains that do not quite let us see in… This course allows us to analyse the meaning of these different ways of looking at art.

The course is made up of seven sessions each lasting one and a half hours. The sessions are held once a week on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Sundays. Registration is open from Tuesday 10th September and can be done via online or by calling 0034 91 127 82 22 or 0034 902 760 511.
