It was Mondriaans goal to establish connections between people through his art, more specifically through abstraction and an international, universal, interdisciplinairy language. With his last work “Victory Boogie Woogie” he makes one final attempt, but he dies before he's able to finish it.
It remains uncertain wether it is his approaching death or the fact that the little squares in the painting touch and interact for the first time, but regardless it can be said that there is a broad and adjuring quality in this painting, that depicts the streets of New York as seen from a skyscraper.
The “Victory Boogie Woogie” performance is set on the street, where it interacts with the dynamics of city life, structures, and the connection between people.
