TAS Birmingham Lecture - 22 January 2020

The Two Gustav's - Klimt and Mahler

In The Arts Society Birmingham's first lecture of 2020 writer and broadcaster, Gavin Plumley, relates how Gustav Klimt and his colleagues broke away from the imperially endorsed art institutions in Vienna in 1897 and formed the Secession. In the same year Gustav Mahler arrived to take charge of the Opera House in the same city.  Comparing these two totemic fin-de-siècle talents Gavin's lecture places Klimt and Mahler in context, asking what fundamentally links and, indeed, divides them.
