About Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint

Year Released:

Four years before Wassily Kandinsky painted his first abstract canvas, Swedish artist Hilma af Klint painted the first abstract canvas. Until recently, her contributions have been forgotten, overshadowed by narratives of male genius. In Beyond the Visible, the story of af Klint’s own genius receives the spotlight it deserves. Inspired by science and spiritualism, af Klint created an astonishing body of work rich in symbolism and meaning; her brilliance has been compared with that of Leonardo da Vinci. Halina Dyrschka’s fascinating documentary investigates how this exceptional woman was erased from art history and makes the case that it’s finally time for that history to be rewritten. In Swedish, English, and German with English subtitles.
