ArtBeats: Munch: Love Phantoms and Lady-Vampires
DIRECTED BY: Michelle Mally
NARRATED BY: Ingrid Bolsø Berdal
RUN TIME: 90 Minutes
There is no painter in the world both more famous and less known than Edvard Munch.
The debt contemporary culture has towards Munch is impressive, from Andy Warhol to Ingmar Bergman, from Marina Abramovich to Jasper Johnes.
If his painting has become a symbol and at the same time an omen of the tragedies of the twentieth century, his art has travelled new and experimental roads of extraordinary modernity. Today, however, it is his city, Oslo, which sets a turning point for the knowledge of Munch: the birth of a new museum. This documentary will start from there to shed light on a man and an artist with singular charm, a precursor and a master.
