FILM SERIES

Every season, the museum presents a series of documentaries and feature films that engage with central themes of the art on display. These films are selected by the curatorial staff, and shed light on the deeper motivations of artists, give insight into the time period, or demonstrate the ongoing influence of turn-of-the-century art and thought on today's culture.

Films are presented free of charge on select Mondays at 4 p.m. in Café Fledermaus. For a calendar of upcoming film screenings and other programs, please click here.
