Beyond the Visible - Hilma af Klint
Buy Tickets Become a Member for Discount Pricing

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

"A must for anyone who cares about modern art."
Hollywood Reporter

"BEYOND THE VISIBLE bristles with the excitement of discovery and also with the impatience that recognition has taken so long. It refreshes the eyes and the mind."
— New York Times

"If you are a lover of art, especially abstract art, you must see BEYOND THE VISIBLE. You'll be blown away by af Klint's genius and how ahead of her time she really was." 
— Film Threat
