This is the continuation of the first part, which under the name “Seascapes - from Caspar David Friedrich to Emil Nolde” attracted more than 90,000 visitors in the summer of 2005. The show now shows the influence of the sea on international art from classical modernism to the present day.
More than 160 works are exhibited. In addition to painting, the more modern forms of representation such as installation, collages, photography and video are not neglected. The artists include such famous names as Andy Warhol and Paul Klee, but the youngest generation of artists is also represented. In addition to the works of art on display, the exhibition offers an impressive accompanying program: Sea lights - artists explain their works
Water games - children and adults can create their own seascapes under expert guidance. Wave sounds - Sailor songs and sailor operas are heard, rhymes on waves and waves are composed and sailor's yarn is spun
Behind these three keywords are entire series of events with a wide variety of activities. Particular emphasis was placed on child-friendliness. Little pirates and mermaids are worth a little extra program for the organizers. These have made a lot of effort to appeal to all the senses, and so the viewer is immersed in a veritable sea of impressions. They do not stop at the palate either, and so there are even maritime delicacies available.
The entire calendar of events can be found on the Internet; early registration is recommended for the individual events.
