Using the Arts to reveal the contamination by mitteleuropean culture in the works of Johannes Brahms.
A video mapping work projected onto the façade of the Portogruaro Council building for the 32nd International Music Festival of Portogruaro, dedicated to the influence of Hungarian popular music on the works of J. Brahms.
In the wake of the First World War the great empires of the time collapsed along with an entire cultural environment. This break with the past found its expression in the world of the arts with the advent of two parallel and discordant tendencies: pure formal research on the one hand, and a search for the roots of figurative art and the need to get back in touch with reality, on the other. Taking these considerations as its starting point, the work looks at the influence that popular Hungarian music had on the works of J. Brahms, a way of linking these two historical and cultural threads.
