In art, the works of Hieronymus Bosch were considered as "Der Fall Bosch" for a long time. One could not do anything with it for quite some time. In the early Renaissance and the late Gothic period, one considered the world rather with grace and with a sense of realism. However, Bosch created abstruse cave dweller and let this off its viewers: frightening hybrids of humans and animals, demons with bodies in bird form and eyeglasses, strange-looking tree people and many other bizarre characters. Nevertheless, even those days there were followers of this whimsical art. For example, there was Margaret of Austria, governor of the Netherlands, a great admirer of his unique pictorial worlds.

Nowadays, the whole world celebrates Bosch´s dark works in 2016. "Hieronymus Bosch. Visions Alive" in the Alte Münze in Berlin is more than an ordinary exhibition. iVision Entertainment Berlin created a unique multimedia exhibition in tribute. There is to see animated projections in HD quality. The visitor immerses in fantastic worlds of colours, sounds and light. In his "Garden of Earthly Delights“, all his quirky cave creatures surround one. What appears as a terrifying act on the one hand side, others describe again as visionary.

Besides all multimedia additionally all available information about life and work of the artist are in the exhibition scope. There are also some symbolic interpretations of other artists who are trying to externalize the oftentimes intricate interpretations of his artworks. There is always room for speculation. That is probably what makes the artist Hieronymus Bosch that fascinating. He was a timeless artist - a visionary of modernity.
