For almost 150 years, one of the greatest literary inventions has fascinated children and adults alike: Lewis Carroll’s tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Soon after it was first published, the story of the little girl’s journey down a rabbit hole and – in the sequel – through a mysterious looking glass, quickly captured the imagination of a wide circle of readers that included Queen Victoria and OscarWilde. Carroll’s stories continue to captivate an audience of millions, whether as novels or as film adaptations.
Now, for the first time, an exhibition is being dedicated to Alice and the many different ways in which she has inspired and influenced visual artists. Alice in the Wonderland of Art at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (Hamburg, Germany) brings together around 200 works from 150 years of art history, including paintings, sculptures, book illustrations, photographs, drawings, films and installations. The broad range of media on show demonstrates the variety of approaches to this subject matter and transforms the exhibition itself into a striking visual wonderland.
Date: until September 30.
Location: Hamburger Kunsthalle. Glockengießerwall. D-20095 Hamburg. Germany.
Opening hours: from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. Thursdays from 10am to 9pm.
