Flowers Forever. Flowers in art and culture
12.10.2024 — 19.1.2025
With their splendor and diversity flowers have always captivated us. We attribute great symbolic power to them – whether in mythology, religion, art or politics. In earlier centuries, flowers were coveted status symbols, today they are traded globally as a mass product. Currently, the flower is coming into focus as a fragile yet indispensable component of our global eco-system. With objects from art, design, fashion and natural science, Flowers Forever offers a fascinating, elaborately staged tour through the cultural history of flowers from antiquity to the present day.
An exhibition of the Kunsthalle München, in cooperation with the Bucerius Kunst Forum.
