Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche

Documentary 1h 35m 2020

AroView: A documentary exploring the art world of turn-of-the-century Vienna, where Gustav Klimt and his rebellious protégé Egon Schiele created revolutionary works reflecting a culture of restlessness, neuroses and fear throughout WWI and the Spanish flu pandemic.

Anchored by five stunning exhibitions, whose works are placed in a wider cultural context spanning literature, music and science, notably Freud’s psychological concepts and the challenge to conservatism posed by women’s liberation movements. Klimt and Schiele’s provocative and frequently pornographic works catapulted Viennese society into a restless modernity. An immersive historical portrait of a fascinating era.
