Directed by Halina Dyrschka


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. 

Reviews

“CRITIC’S PICK. Bristles with the excitement of discovery and also with the impatience that recognition has taken so long.  It refreshes the eyes and the mind.”

“One of the best films I’ve seen about fine art. It casts an entrancing spell that allows the staggering depth of its subject’s work to consume us.”

“Gorgeous…goes far deeper than the surface…making an airtight case for af Klint’s ascension to an elevated place in art history.”

“An illuminating articulation of the era’s social and cultural complexities.  It’s more than worth a look — not only for its careful illumination of the artist’s biography, plus an abundant representation of her luminous paintings, but for the way in which it exposes the obstacles af Klint and her legacy faced”

"The film fascinates as an excavation of lost history as well as a study of the values and biases that shape the artistic canon.  Dyrschka’s delivers an engaging master class of art theory and history. Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint provides a unique opportunity to stroll the galleries as the artist gets her posthumous spotlight."

“Takes a deep dive into her oeuvre, while also revealing known details of the artist’s life.”

MOVIE OF THE WEEK.  “Dryschka’s fascinating documentary is an illuminating introduction to a major artist all but erased from modern art history.“
