Kandinskij, knight errant

The journey towards abstraction

Mudec pays homage to Wassily Kandinsky with an original “site-specific” exhibition, based around his vocation and the relationship between art and science and on the metaphor of travel as a cognitive adventure. All these aspects were experimented with by the founder of abstract art who always showed an interest in a scientific approach to reality, exploration and travel as a leitmotif of his own existence. 

The exhibition – which displays his works from the most important Russian museums, some never seen before in Italy, alongside examples of popular culture that inspired him- traces the long formative period of the artist’s visual imagination, up to 1921, when he moved to Germany never to return to Russia. The aim is to allow the spectator, also with the help of specific multimedia aids, to understand the origin and development of his symbolic code, in a fascinating journey through his visual sources. The visitor can “enter” into his abstract paintings and navigate through them. Exactly as he wanted, writing «for years I tried to get spectators to walk inside my paintings: I wanted to force them to lose themselves, even to disappear inside».
