As part of the Dancing Museums EU project, a group of international choreographers and dancers will join museum goers in an exploration of the unsettling power of the monstrous creatures in Hieronymus Bosch’s famous work The Last Judgment. Hieronymus Bosch – just happening – Video Dance Visions will transform the museum into a multilayer experience with a collection of video installations that open up new angles on the works of art in the Old Masters collection.
Hieronymus Bosch’s The Last Judgement and his terrifying other-worldly creatures – some half human half animal, others bestial new creations – are at the heart of a new exhibition entitled Nature gone astray?. From November 4, 2016-January 29, 2017 this show will present strange visions from the Middle Ages to the present day depicting chimeras, goblins and monsters that represent a departure from established notions of natural beauty. From thought-provoking and, in some cases, amusing, 15th century illuminations as well as 16th and 17th century graphic printing and painting, the collection represents a range of periods all the way through to the present day.
