World Creators: Wagner – Klinger - May

16/05 - 15/09/2013 Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig

What’s the connection between Richard Wagner (1813–1883), Max Klinger (1857–1920) and
Karl May (1842–1912)? Apart from the fact that they were all born in Saxony, the composer,
the visual artist and the writer all shared a desire to tackle the theme of conflicts with societal
norms in their bold artistic visions.

To mark the bicentenary of Richard Wagner's birth, this cross-genre exhibition explores the imaginative
worlds of these three Saxons who did so much for the development of art in the 19th and 20th
centuries. The Leipzig Museum of Fine Arts is surely staging the most opulent exhibition of the
Wagner Bicentenary Year.
