Event type

Red, yellow and blue. All other colors can be mixed from these three basic colors - we already learn this in childhood. And the artists of the 20th century have also been returning to these three colors again and again since Expressionism. Red, yellow and blue also play an important role in the museum DASMAXIMUM KunstGegenwart in Traunreut. The colors can be found in the work of the Minimalists, such as Imi Knobel or Dan Flavin, as well as in the work of Pop Art artists, such as Andy Warhol or Uwe Lausen. The guided tour "Who's afraid of red, yellow, blue?" shows how and why artists from the 1960s onwards specifically used certain colors in their works, how they affect us as viewers and what influence the exhibition space has on the colors. How do we humans see colors and what influence does digitalization have on our perception of color? Vanessa Zmudzinski, art historian and museum employee at DASMAXIMUM, will guide you through the exhibition on the trail of red, yellow and blue.

We ask for registration via the VHS Traunreut.
