Beyond the Visible - Hilma af Klint

Allowed 93 minutes 2019 7.9

It has taken many years for the art world to understand the greatness of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint and her abstract works. Her paintings were found in an attic in Stockholm in the late 1960s, only to be ignored by the large institutions of modern art. In the early 1900s, the art world was revolutionized by Kandinsky, Mondrian and Malevich's abstract painting, but in fact Hilma af Klint was far ahead of the avant-garde men of that time. This documentary, by German director Halina Dyrschka, gives Hilma af Klint a legitimate place in art history. In addition, we also get to enjoy some of the fantastic, timeless and spiritual works created by Af Klint. Clemens Poellinger at SvD thinks that the documentary highlights overlooked female artistry and Birgitta Rubin at DN writes that this documentary puts Hilma af Klint in a new light.
