Vasarely Museum

Illusionary Movement – Walking in Vasarely's Footsteps

Let’s take a walk along the path the father of kinetic art, Victor Vasarely, travelled over his lifetime. His interest in movement, time and space inspired the materials he chose and the compositions he made. Which ones are based on optical illusions? Which ones only really come alive when we move in front of them? By walking in Vasarely's footsteps, we we’ll understand and be able to try out simple solutions to complex ideas.
