Edvard Munch – Trembling Earth | Museum Barberini
Museum Barberini will show the exhibition Trembling Earth by the artist Edvard Munch from 18 November 2023. This is the first exhibition on landscapes by Edvard Munch that focuses on his interaction with nature. On the one hand, Edvard Munch regarded nature as a cyclically self-renewing force; on the other, he saw in it a reflection of his own inner conflict. Munch developed a pantheistic understanding of nature, which he projected onto the forests and coasts of Norway. The dramatic weather he depicted in his paintings is particularly striking in view of the current climate crisis.
Exhibition dates: Saturday, 18 November 2023 – Monday, 01 April 2024
