English version


Who was Anna-Eva Bergman? Like so many women artists, the work of this abstract painter, who died in 1987, has long been overlooked, not only because she was overshadowed by her more famous husband, the artist Hans Hartung, but because her minimalist paintings ran counter to the art-world trends of the time. Imbued with a deep sense of spirituality, Bergman’s work resonates strongly with the search for meaning prevalent in today’s society. Simone Hoffmann’s films invites us to rediscover one of the world’s most important contemporary artists in the context of her retrospective exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.


With Thomas Schlesser, director, Fondation Hartung-Bergman ; Wenche Volle, senior curator, Nasjonalmuseet Oslo ; Hélène Leroy, museum curator, Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris ; Jérôme Poggi, galerist ; Karin Hellandsjø, art historian and friend ; Bernard Derderian, former assistant.
