Audi extends involvement in the Bayreuth Festival with modern art film project
- The film “Black Mountain” looks at Wagner’s “Parsifal” from a new perspective
- Accompanying exhibition “Black Mountain X Fragments” from July 6–24 in Berlin
Berlin/Ingolstadt, June 29, 2016 – Audi is extending its sponsorship of the Bayreuth Festival with an innovative film project. Entitled “Black Mountain,” it is part of the company’s “Zeitgeist” series launched by the company in 2015 to support dialog with creative minds from various disciplines. Audi realized the art film with the artist collective “Like A Wild Beast’s Fur,” with composer Moritz von Oswald and cultural adviser Jan Engel. “Black Mountain” is inspired by Richard Wagner’s “Parsifal,” which is being newly staged this year at the Bayreuth Festival, and adds new perspectives on this stage production. The film can be viewed from July 6–24 as part of the “Black Mountain X Fragments” exhibition at Galerie Patrick Ebensperger in Berlin.
