Eros in Vienna May 2, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Arts.

Quite opportunely Vienna has an extraordinary exhibition, “Eros in Modern Art”.

At the BA-CA Kunstforum visitors will encounter a wide variety of interpretations of Eros spanning from love, passion and lust to dreams and unity. More than 200 artworks by Paul Cezanne, Gustav Klimt, Salvador Dali and many more from the past 150 years ensure that Eros is facetted in multiple ways. The exhibition poses more questions than it answers, for instance: Why is art so evidently connected to Eros? Why, to quote Picasso, is art “never chaste”?

Several events are linked to the exhibition: Erotic culinary delights at the Hilton Vienna Plaza, readings of texts from erotic literature backed by music, and philosofical reflections on extra-marital affairs! The last two require that you command German.

BA-CA Kunstforum exhibition: Eros in Modern Art in Vienna can be visited until July 22, 2007.
