The Ideal City/La Città Ideale in the 15th Century

The Ideal City/La Città Ideale in the 15th Century

If you paid attention during art history classes (well, even if you didn’t) you know that the paintings ‘The Ideal City/La Città Ideale’ are one of the most fine examples of Italian Renaissance work. The Ideal City/La Città Ideale is a name given to 3 paintings which are kept at Urbino, Baltimore and Berlin and are named likewise. They are also known as the Urbino perspectives. The Ideal City of Urbino is the one we would like to share with you in specific. The Ideal City of Urbino, circa 1470, tempera on panel.

At the time we were in school this painting was believed to be made by Piero della Francesca. After that it was attributed to Luciano Laurana (and Francesco di Giorgio, Martini or Melozzo da Forlì.) Nowadays nobody knows for sure. (#theunneccesraythings #youneedlearnandremember) Continue reading

Party in a Color Haze by Cody Choi

Party in a Color Haze by Cody Choi

Korean artist Cody Choi created an installation named Color Haze. We, at Mmi Berlin, saw it at the Venice Biennale in 2017, and it brightened our day, nee: our week (and maybe this entire month)

Intuiition at Palazzo Fortuny

Intuiition at Palazzo Fortuny

During the Venice Biennalle  there is more to see than the art exhibited at the Arsenale exhibition spaces and Giardini della Biennale. For instance, at Palazzo Fortuny the exhibition Intuiition can be seen. It’s a collection of historic, modern and contemporary works, related to the concept of intuition, dreams, telepathy, paranormal fantasy, meditation, creative power, hypnosis and inspiration. Intuition is the last in a series of 4 exhibitions at the Palazzo Fortuny cocurated by Axel Vervoordt and Fortuny museum director Daniela Ferretti.

Similar to the The boat is leaking. The captain lied. exhibition at Fondazione Prada held in another Palazzo in Venice downtown, the Intuiition exhibition also took us on a tour throughout the 3 stories high building. Each floor is transformed into something one would call an installation: each floor set in a different atmosphere, nice!

You can visit Intuiition through 26 November 2017
