A special guided tour with insights into the works on display. Visits with the curators and the director are a unique opportunity to get behind the scenes and information about the concept of the exhibition, the works on display and the artists directly from those who conceived it.

Bird Flight takes its title from a series of paintings by the Austrian artist Erika Giovanna Klien (1900-1957), in which the flight of birds is expressed through movement and light, which are central themes in her art. Overlooked by the history of art like many other twentieth century female artists, and included in Lea Vergine’s The Other Half of the Avant-Garde, published in the 1980s, Klein was one of the most interesting exponents of the Kinetism movement, founded by Franz Cizek in Vienna after the First World War.
