Beethoven Moves Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna
An exhibition in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna brings Ludwig van Beethoven into dialogue with John Baldessari and Tino Sehgal.
His universal and unique reception, the epochal significance of his music, but also the perception of his deified persona, create numerous entry points; high and popular culture, commerce and politics all form an inexhaustible reservoir for inspiration and appropriation.
The exhibition brings together a large-scale sculpture and a new work developed for the exhibition by Tino Sehgal, and much more, all of which are brought into dialogue with the music and persona of Beethoven. The exhibition will thus build a bridge with the present: masterpieces of fine art form connections with music and silence.
