Escher s Universe

(MIFF 2013, Special Events)

Director: Ernesto Páramo

Escher’s Universe is based on the life and work of Maurits Cornelis Escher. Was he an artist, an astronomer, a mathematician, a traveller?

This show takes audiences into the artist’s studio where his most iconic works are displayed. It visits Escher’s particular universe, where his use of mathematics, astronomy, optics, crystallography and geometry to artistically explain complex concepts – via three-dimensional reconstructions, dual worlds, unreal buildings and impossible continuities – reveals his passion for knowledge.
