The interplay of color and space

The paintings by Mark Rothko undoubtedly number among the truly breathtaking visual experiences offered by the Fondation Beyeler. With his large-format canvases, the artist has created wonderful color spaces in which all trace of anecdote and narrative has been suppressed. Rothko’s colors cast a complex spell upon the viewer. "I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so on.” 

ANSICHTEN no. 5 takes an in-depth look at Marc Rothko’s works in the Fondation Beyeler. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

ANSICHTEN is aimed at art lovers and teachers looking to engage in greater depth with the works of the Fondation Beyeler.

The journal also features a practical section, which presents ideas, tasks and experiments that may be carried out at the museum, at school or at home.

ANSICHTEN playfully provides readers with thorough knowledge of the works of the Beyeler Collection.
