Kandinsky was a Russian painter, considered to be a pioneer of abstract and one of the most outstanding avant-garde painters of all time. Art and sound were one in the same to him. Part of his goal as an artist was to depict and share his synesthesia experiences. The result is a painting that is complex and visually stimulating, with color combinations that reverberate.

Guided by our own, we will take you through the evolution of Kandinsky’s art from Russia to France.

36441_10150197199490254_1211400_nZsofia Banuta moved on from a high-octane television career to follow her entrepreneurial ambition with an MBA at IE Business School.
The ambitious entrepreneur started her career at media corporation CBS in New York before moving to London to work as an assistant news producer for rivals CNN and CNBC. Working as the world’s eyes and ears she interviewed prime ministers, leading sportsmen and covered major breaking news stories including the global financial crisis in 2008.
After graduating from IE — where she headed Entrepreneurship Club — Zsofia worked in financial PR before co-founding her own business, Arteia, a smart platform for art collectors.
As chief operating officer, her vision is to bring more transparency to the art market by building an exclusive community which enables collectors to professionally catalogue their artworks, to connect with curators to exhibit and to prepare their own shows.
How did the idea for Arteia come about and what challenges do you face?
I met my co-founder Marek Zabicki at a tech conference in London. Marek is a visionary with unparalleled experience in the arts and culture sector. It was his idea to build an online cataloguing system for art collectors and we developed it together.
The more I work in the art world the more I love it. But it’s a highly niche market and only those who really understand it consider investing. We have to be very creative when it comes to fundraising.
For many people, working in television seems like a dream job. What was your experience like?
Since I was a teenager I dreamt of working as a news producer in an international newsroom — and I did it!
It’s such an intense, fast-paced environment with no room for error. It’s an amazing feeling to be close to powerful decision makers, to write headlines and be present at historic events which shape our world. On the other hand, it’s a very challenging environment. The hours are very difficult; my shift for the morning show started at 4am.
The way we consume news has been changing and the industry is in transition. Today, the pressure is even greater because the competition, with the internet and other broadcasters, is insane. Read more…


IE Arts & Business Club enjoys a private tour through Museo Reina Sofía

Written on August 17, 2015 by Administrador de IE Blogs in IE Art Club

RS1By Cindy Kook, Raphaelle Vulliet Falcon De Longevialle and Laura Theuretzbacher

Not too long ago, the IE Arts & Business Club and its members had the great opportunity to visit the Museo Reina Sofia with a private guided tour. Alumnis and current students walked through the impressive and big exhibition halls led by a very enthusiastic guide which made the visit all the more fun!

The tour was focused on Masterpieces from the early Ángeles Santos, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí.

The aim was to show the artist’s evolutions from their early beginnings to their late years of painting. The guide tried to draw the visitor’s attention to specific details in the paintings. He showed that certain symbols appeared in the older as well as in the latest paintings of the artists; be it in the same or in a transformed way.

It was impressive to see how much the artists changed styles during their careers and why; often it was due to external influences from other artists, politics or war, just to name a few. Therefore, not so popular paintings mostly from the early years, were hard for the visitors to be identified as a Dalí or a Miró. Discovering and learning about this was very interesting and enlightening.

Last but not least, the probably most famous painting of the Museo Reina Sofia was shown to us: Guernica. Besides the history behind it, the guide went much deeper into the development phases of the painting and how often Picasso re-worked and re-painted it. Picasso´s objective was to show war through this painting but without using any symbol that could be associated with war. He wanted to show the pain and cruelty, which happened to Guernica in 1937 through facial expressions and movements so that anybody could understand that the painting is about war without literally seeing war.

We were very happy to see so many students show up for this event and that we were able to distract them from their case studies for a while!
