Dalí: Das endlose Rätsel

In the organizer's words:

Artistic director: Gianfranco Iannuzzi / Conception and realization: Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, Massimiliano Siccardi / Adaptation and video animation: Cutback / Production: Culturespaces Studio®

Salvador Dalí's work is a spectacle! One is caught between fairy tale, hallucination and dream. What is not to be missed on the canvas seems almost more fantastic in our new exhibition Dalí: The Endless Enigma.

Throughout his life and to this day, Salvador Dalí has been regarded as one of the most enigmatic figures in contemporary art. His twirled moustache is just as iconic as his painting "The Persistence of Memory" with its world-famous, melting clocks.

From January 26, visitors can now experience works from more than 60 years of the Spanish artist's career: From Cubism to Surrealism and Futurism to his later Realism, visitors to the exhibition will embark on a thematic tour through metaphysical landscapes and imaginative worlds.

The original works, which are on display in museums all over the world, are projected onto floors and walls in Dortmund. Accompanying archive images show Dalí himself as well as his fascination for his wife Gala, who was regarded as both his muse and artistic colleague. The exhibition is accompanied musically by an atmospheric medley by the British rock band Pink Floyd.

Immerse yourself in the surrealist works of this great artist and lose yourself in his fantastic world. Even 30 years after his death, Dalí's work is still a welcome escape from the familiar here and now. Presented as you have never seen it before.

The immersive exhibition was realized in collaboration with the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dalí.
