Pretty much 500 years ago, Hieronymus Bosch died. The Dutch painter was and is to this day one the most mysterious, most fatidic and, for many contemporaries and artistic heirs, most inspiring personalities that ever lived. Hieronymus Bosch created paintings filled with symbols, religious grace and earthly criticism, filled with blood, sweat, tears and excrements. Torn bodies, effusions, copulating creatures of all species, monsters, devils and torture. Any superstition and fear that might have plagued a human in the middle ages formed his works. The probably most famous painting „The Garden of Earthly Delights “, which portrays humanity caught in the trap of its sins and truly captures the Zeitgeist, has become the symbol of the middle ages par excellence. His few further masterpieces are scattered across various museums and galleries who guard them jealously. The exhibition Hieronymus Bosch.Visions Alive has now not only compiled the scarcely available information on the life and existence of the artist but has also gathered all of the main works in a unique multimedia exhibition. Huge, pin-sharp HD screens bring the colourful, fantastic worlds, the hybrid beings and monstrous creatures from hell to life. The paradise-like utopias and apocalyptic visions can be examined right down to the smallest detail. The whole thing is accompanied by an especially composed sound track. Low-threshold art is what the experts would call it. Fascinating and spectacular is what we call it and are giving away a pair of tickets worth 12,50 Euro each to the particularly unafraid amongst you.
