January 30 - Museum Visit at MoMA

Pablo Picasso, Don Quijote de la Mancha

What’s the Matter with Reality? A Journey through the main artistic Movements of late 19th and 20th cen­turies.

"How would the painter or the poet express any­thing else than his encounter with the world?" (Maurice Merleau Ponty). During this tour of MoMA we will try to under­stand and pen­e­trate this "encounter with the world" that lies behind each painting.

A rapid over­look of the main artistic Movements of the late 19th and 20th cen­turies will enable us to empha­size dif­ferent ways to look at Reality -far from arche­ology, we may find out how con­tem­po­rary these dif­ferent atti­tudes may some­times be... As our pre­sent time is more and more seduced by “vir­tual reality”, Monet, Picasso, Mirò, Mondrian, etc. will be our guides on this our journey towards Reality !
