Part of Love From BAM and Film

Dir. Halina Dryschka | 2019, 93min

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed: a visionary, trailblazing figure who—inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her—began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dyrschka’s dazzling, course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

Q&A with director Halina Dyrschka, moderated by Guggenheim assistant curator David Horowitz
