The group exhibition goes in search of the places where creativity takes shape – the artist studio, where ideas are born. The show brings together over 20 internationally renowned photographers from the Magnum agency.

Around 80 photo portraits will be shown by artists who wrote art history in the past century. They can all be seen in their creative environment, from the cramped studios of the Parisian avant-garde artists at the beginning of the 20th century, to the New York lofts of the American pop and minimal artists, to the highly professional studios of the international stars of the contemporary art market. The photographs are the result of an attempt to capture the moment when the spark of creativity leaps over.
