Description: Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a transformational figure in the history of modern art. Alongside his development of a revolutionary abstract style, Kandinsky demonstrated an ambition to go beyond conventional easel painting. This exhibition charts how the artist's large paintings with musical and theatrical associations from the Blaue Reiter years developed into large-scale Bauhaus environments. The artist's 1922 Juryfreie murals will be re-created for the exhibition, enabling visitors to "walk inside" a Kandinsky painting.

Children under 12 not admitted; children aged 12-16 must be accompanied by an adult. Strollers and baby carriages are only permitted on the ground floor and lower level.
