Art has always shown more than the real world, it has explored the interior of man, his emotions and psyche. The appearance of mechanical reproduction of reality in the form of photographs or films has intensified this process. During April lectures Art Transfer Foundation proposes meetings with very different artists. All of them, however, using different means, set a mirror in which we can see our reflection. They will talk about the relationship between art and man on the example of the works of renowned painter Marlene Dumas. When asked about the meaning of painting, she answers: I love the physical experience. The rhythm of individual gestures and the processuality. Painting may not be the leading field of art, but it will undoubtedly never completely disappear. It is a very important aspect of human activity and sensibility. Anish Kapoor is known for his sculptural installations that, under the guise of abstraction, diagnose our emotions and relationship to the world. The work of Diane Arbus, who died exactly half a century ago, still seems very relevant. Through the medium of photography she expresses human fears, but also curiosity and wonder at the contemporary world. A photograph is a secret in a secret," says the artist, "The more one tells, the less one knows. Gerhard Richter is the doyen of German art, one of the most respected contemporary artists. The final meeting will focus on his figurative paintings, which show the blurred boundaries between reality, its perception and depiction in art.
