The Albertina is a multidisciplinary museum. In its historical rooms you'll find graphic masterpieces by Dürer and Rubens. There is an exhibition of Impressionists and Avant-garde art from the Butliner collection, as well as contemporary art halls and photography.In this art tour, we will visit each of the rooms to discover the must-see objects from the permanent exhibition and the masterpieces of the temporary exhibitions. We will try to find the answer to the question of how important it is for us - the viewers - to be aware of the artist's personality and whether that helps us to understand works of art, or whether it rather distorts our perception of art. We will look at the specifics of the style of the different artists and try to understand how attitudes towards creative freedom and the concept of inspiration have changed through the different centuries.Excursion route • Historic rooms (graphics by Dürer, Rubens, Schiele and Klimt). • The exhibition "From Monet to Picasso" from the Butliners' collection: the triumph of geniuses and the death of the artist. • Contemporary Art Halls: Hermann Nietzsche: the boundaries of the canvas.

This collection features every surviving colour episode of one of the longest running police series on British television – and one of the best-loved. Aired between 1955 and 1976, Dixon of Dock Green starred the popular Jack Warner in the role of Sergeant George Dixon, in a series that set the tone for television police drama and paved the way for all that would follow. Filmed on set and on location around the fast-disappearing dockland community of London’s East End, the character of Dixon, with his friendly and informal ‘Evening all’, offered viewers the kind of policeman you’d be tempted to welcome into your home for a cup of tea – even if you’d just robbed a bank. Featuring episodes filmed between 1973 and 1976, this collection includes the final series, the 22nd, in its entirety, and also features a wide range of specially filmed cast and crew interviews, along with a tribute to the series’ star, Jack Warner. In a modern world of CSI, DNA, and CCTV, much has changed and much remains the same in these still-gripping and utterly compelling episodes of Dixon of Dock Green.
