Frida Kahlo triunfante en Berlín

frida(Alem.) En el museo Martin Gropius Bau de Berlín, se presenta una retrospectiva más de la pintora mexicana Frida Kahlo, a casi 56 años de su muerte. Se exhiben obras de arte y artículos personales de la artista, que van desde fotografías, vestidos y bocetos inéditos, según fuentes del museo.

A lo largo de una vida colmada de enfermedades, dolores, accidentes, sufrimientos, amores y desamores,  Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón (6 de julio de 1907-13 de julio de 1954) tal vez nunca imagino que sus demonios y reflexiones la llevarían a ser una de las mujeres más admiradas por artistas e intelectuales de su época, mexicanos y extranjeros, y que la condujesen a ser una de las pintoras mexicanas más admiradas y valoradas en el mundo del arte contemporáneo, aunque ella no quisiera “volver jamás”.

La mujer a la que Bretón calificaría como “surrealista”, nunca pintó sus sueños, sino su “propia realidad”, como ella misma explicó. Reflejó su presente, aquella realidad de crisis, de confusión y sufrimiento, el lubricante del engranaje de esta máquina del “desarrollo” y la posmodernidad.

Tal vez esa sea una de las lecturas y de las muchas razones por la que hasta el pasado 2 de junio, más de 150 mil alemanes habían visitado la muestra dedicada a Frida. “Pero lo que sorprende aún más, es que en su mayoría, los visitantes sigan siendo mujeres”, aseguró Gereon Sievernich, director del museo.

Lo que es un hecho, es que en el trasfondo de esta muestra – y que no por ello se desvalora su trabajo- es que se está folklorizando la exposición, no sólo porque se componga de artículos personales de la artista, sino por el carácter mediático que la engloba.

Dato curioso es que a la visitante número 150 mil –pues hay que recalcar que fue una mujer, proveniente de la ciudad oriental de Weimar- la recibieron Francisco González, embajador de México en Alemania, y el director del museo.

Entre otras de las actividades que se realizaron en la retrospectiva dedicada a Kahlo – por la conmemoración de sus 103 años de nacimiento- destaca el concurso al vestuario que mejor se acercara a las lujosas y nacionalistas vestimentas que presumía, en México y en el extranjero, la tan afamada pintora.También, al ritmo de mariachis se degustaron platillos típicos mexicanos, tales como enchiladas, tequila,  chilaquiles, rajas con crema, pastel de elote, entre otros antojitos.

Cabe destacar que, de seguir así, esta muestra con más de 120 objetos, – entre vestuarios personales de la artista, fotografías, bocetos y otros de los que se presume, son inéditos-, rompería el record de otra exposición similar, pero de 354 piezas, que el Palacio de Bellas en México rindió en el 2007 por la conmemoración de los cien años de su natalicio, a la que asistieron más de 415 mil visitantes.

La exposición de Frida Kahlo en Alemania, con éxito rotundo y un posible récord de asistencia, ya extendió sus horarios de 10 am a las 22 horas y concluirá hasta el 9 de agosto del 2010.
