Collection: Hilma af Klint and Wassily Kandinsky Dreams of the Future

March 16 – August 11, 2024

Two great names are considered the guiding stars of Western abstraction: On the one hand, Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944), the Russian painter, co-founder of the “Blauer Reiter” in Munich, and teacher at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau. On the other hand, Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), the Swedish artist whose visionary work has only recently been rediscovered and has since inspired a wide audience.

With the exhibition at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, the works of af Klint and Kandinsky will be united for the first time in a comprehensive exhibition. It offers a unique opportunity to compare and understand their paintings, watercolors, drawings, and notes. Af Klint and Kandinsky, who lived almost simultaneously, have in common that they wanted to invent much more than a new style of painting with abstraction. Both dreamed of a future to which art would point the way.
