"Every human being is an artist." - Joseph Beuys
Discover Modern Art with our Pompidou centre private tour
After having wondered at 5000 years of human creativity at the Louvre, and met the artists that made art possible at the musée d'Orsay, now is time to discover art proper.
For 5000 years we were told, looking at artworks, to fear and respect Kings and Emperors, as they were conquerors. We were also told religious stories.
The first reaction in front of artworks who did not tell people what to think or what to do was confusion, insults and laughs! To say the artists were crazy, talentless, that children could do better etc...
What people were looking at instead was, for the first time, art, simply meant as art, not propaganda.
No one complains that music 'means nothing' while it does transport us with emotions... So let's discover, with our Modern Art tour the great steps of 20th century art: Matisse, Picasso and Braque, abstraction with Kandinsky and Malevich, later Pollock and Rothko, and more.
Let's wonder at a stunning reinvention of art with Marcel Duchamp, and from Dada to Andy Warhol, at a century of spectacular creativity.
