"Well y'know my dear, that ain't so easy. I ain't married to art, you see, I'm just seein' her on the side."
The offspring of that romance is now on show in the Bundeskunsthalle (the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany). Liebermann may have viewed his relationship to art as an extramarital affair, but it was an impressively fruitful one. This retrospective brings together around one hundred paintings by the artist, who early in his career was reviled as a blasphemer and ‘painter of filth’. The exhibition traces his passage from naturalism to impressionism, of which Liebermann is considered Germany’s foremost representative.
The exhibition also marks new pathways for tonwelt. In addition to the audioguide we have produced applications for iPhone and Android. “Max Liebermann – Pioneer of Modern Art” is the first exhibition in Germany to be accompanied by a guide for the rapidly expanding Android smartphone market.
Even with more “traditional” audio-visual media, tonwelt has introduced a novelty. Every audioguide user will receive a free CD with excerpts from the audio guided tour along with images of many of Max Liebermann’s loveliest works.
We wish all visitors to the exhibition a delightful time exploring Max Liebermann’s works. We especially recommend a stroll through the garden on the exhibition hall roof. It is modeled after the famous gardens at Liebermann’s lakeside villa in Wannsee. We hope to see you there!
Audio guides are available in German (for children and adults) and English (for adults). Click here
