Our idea was actually an art fair for Hamburg to propose and organize with the artists by the way: it came about 40 of us known. And that show up their work and their aspirations to create true cultural works one day in a public presentation is the really true artists that like to penetrate and not to lose hope. Exactly from this corner, actually the words come, that you don’t really care. The criticisms made recently by the renowned Hamburg artist Daniel Freytag, that Hamburg’s cultural funding in folk festivals with food miles and Entertainment presents and Kunstmassig rather than provincial is to see is not entirely new could read it some time ago, inter alia in the Buderpester Lloyd of a renowned art editor and was also previously often expressed but without visible reaction on the part of the city. But maybe interested in the hamBurger generally also not so for educational and other art, but more events and street festivals. An example could be the Gallery kit – integrated into an agency building in Hamburg-Rothenburgsort (also a neighborhood which is vernachlassigt our opinion for decades – there are hamburger, who know him not at all).

Here are 1998 exhibitions that can they with their quality and their content with other galleries. Here, not only hamburger but also internationally agierende artists have presented their work the problem: all were more than one would expect in such a place even if positivster setting and understanding of art, but they were mostly nameless or unknown here, not famous enough and therefore not worth enough of a good response, to be gesehen. All along the way but also not worthy of promotion art project on the part of the Ministry of culture – is here promotes the authority for urban development and environment. Incidentally, many exhibitions have here real event character tell at least the ones that have found their way here.

The exhibition includes signs of the times, when the artist had a relationship of friendship, deeply changed his life. Friendship with Federico Garcia Lorca was a stimulating artistic relationship, occasionally toxic and slightly positive for the poet for the artist. With him and his colleagues in the Academy of fine arts of San Fernando, Dali discovered Cubism and Dadaism, the major classical works, and the Main topics of the international literature, which he reproduced later in these characters that are unique in the world, and in his first book. Also some works that were influenced by the psychoanalysts Sigmund Freud, formed almost a child’s relationship with the Dali belong to the exhibition. The worm and the Angel is the echo of the duality and everything that is hidden in every being.

As the egg, another element that fascinated by Dali, the shell of the snail under a tough appearance hides a weak inner side, which must be protected and maintained. The discovery of this inner page can bring to the liberation, which can be dangerous, then we need to crave, if we become like the snail, which is touched by an Angel, a being, wishing that goes from a standstill to fly to the gods. The tourists who are staying in a residence Venice, can admire also the popular elephant in the room, and this is Dali interpretation of the power, a temptation of St. Anthony could not resist, and the is represented with an obelisk. The sculpture is taken by the spectacular image that was created in New York City.

Later sculptures are exhibited in the exhibition of the Dali universe, and some come from the seventies and from the collection of the surrealist artist created for his friend Isidoro clot. The exhibited works include also recreations such as space Venus, a representation of the transience of human beauty and the unlimited nature of the art beauty that is eternal. The glass sculptures are the fruit of the cooperation with the gallery shop Daum Cristallerie in Paris in the 1960s. Dali often used the glass to create works with a nearly oil-like, virtual, or beautiful texture, such as Cyclops. Dali was not always popular, and he is not by all people, the Museum on the occasion of a holiday in Venice g visit, be popular. It is however sure that the painter, poet, and 360-degree artist, as he defines in his home town of Figueres, leaves nobody completely intact. Alba L
