In conjunction with the Centenary of Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza. 1901-2021 and the exhibition German Expressionism from the Collection of Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza the museum is organising a series of lectures intended to offer an in-depth focus on the Baron’s collections.
Five lectures by Guillermo Solana, Paloma Alarcó, Marta Ruiz del Árbol, Clara Marcellán and Juan Ángel López-Manzanares, all members of the museum’s curatorial team, will analyse different issues, including the artistic sources of German Expressionism; the complex relations between some of its artists; the stories that lie behind the Expressionist works which the Baron acquired; and the reasons for the appeal to him of a movement that gave his modern art collection a unique personality.
The lectures will be given live in the museum’s Auditorium (limited entry numbers) for Friends of the Museum and will be streamed for students and the general public who can also enjoy a free visit to the temporary exhibition.
