»DEPARTURE – MAX BECKMANN AND THE CINEMA«
Theatiner Filmkunst, Munich
The painter Max Beckmann was an enthusiastic but also critical cinema-goer. Be it Amsterdam, Saint Louis or New York, he saw a film almost every day in exile, as his diary entries prove. He had a special preference for cinema that provided him with distraction from the strenuous work in the studio, i.e. successful genre films from Hollywood, be it adventure or musical.
In a small film series as part of the large special exhibition ” Max Beckmann – DEPARTURE” in the Pinakothek der Moderne, KINO DER KUNST presents cinema films from the 1940s that Beckmann saw and mentioned in his diaries.
The series opens with THE GREAT SHADOW from 1943, in which Heinrich George, a friend of the Beckmanns in the early 1930s, plays the leading role. Unlike Max Beckmann and his wife, George had not fled into exile, but had remained in Berlin. He died in 1946 in the Sachsenhausen special camp, where he had been interned by the Soviets.
Each Sunday matinée at the Theatiner Filmkunst cinema is preceded by a thematic introduction by the curatorial team of KINO DER KUNST and Pinakothek der Moderne.
