HIERONYMUS BOSCH: Visions Alive. Berlin

July 6, 2016 – October 30, 2016

Venue: Alte Münze, Molkenmarkt 2, 10179 Berlin

U Klosterstraße, U/S Alexanderplatz

After last year’s success of VAN GOGH ALIVE – The Experience, iVision Entertainment Berlin brings another spectacular multimedia exhibition to the German capital – BOSCH. VISIONS ALIVE by ARTPLAY MEDIA. Open from July to October at Alte Münze, the upcoming exhibition is dedicated to the life and work of the enigmatic – and sometimes unsettling – Early Renaissance master Hieronymus Bosch.

As of now, some 20 paintings and eight drawings are attributed to Hieronymus Bosch, though only seven of those are actually signed by the painter, who did not give any titles to his works during his lifetime. All of Bosch’s paintings were titled by art historians later on. Bosch’s works are enigmatic, full of symbolism and do not have any simple explanations or interpretations. The artist’s life is also a mystery.

There are no surviving letters or diaries by Bosch. Even his year of birth is unknown. Born Jheronimus van Aken, he was a third-generation painter, he married into wealth, he had no children and was a member of the Illustrious Brotherhood of Our Blessed Lady, an influential religious group in his native town of 's-Hertogenbosch.
