Event: Bridging Boundaries. Iran: Kunst, Politik und Kooperationen.

Die derzeitigen Proteste und Revolutionsbestrebungen in Iran, angeführt durch eine junge Generation, die für Freiheit und Menschenrechte einsteht, erfordern universelle Aufmerksamkeit. Die Freiheit der iranischen Bevölkerung sollte nicht nur aufgrund geopolitischer und wirtschaftlicher Interessen von globaler Bewandtnis sein, sondern vor allem auch aus humanistischer Sicht verfolgt werden, um auf die Umsetzung universeller Menschenrechte, Entscheidung- und Meinungsfreiheit sowie das Recht am eigenen Körper hinzuarbeiten.

New Exhibition: “Füssli, the Realm of Dreams and the Fantastic” at Musée Jacquemart-André

16 September 2022 – 23 January 2023
Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris


In autumn 2022, the Musée Jacquemart-André will hold an exhibition devoted to the oeuvre of the Swiss-born British painter, Henry Fuseli (Johann Heinrich Füssli, 1741–1825). Comprising sixty works from public and private collections, the itinerary will present the most emblematic of works by Füssli, the artist of the imaginary and the sublime. From Shakespearean themes to representations of dreams, nightmares, and apparitions, and mythological and Biblical illustrations, Füssli forged a new aesthetic that shifted between reality and the fantastic.
