abstract = {A delightful, very well readable review of ideas and activities that formed the basis for the beginning and the making of the project {\it Mathematics and Art}: for the exhibitions, books, congresses and film-series using diverse multimedia instruments from cinema to videos, from computer graphics to three-dimensional animation. Moreover the author talks about the very successful (especially within the general public) books (by Simon Singh, H. M. Enzensberger and A. Doxiades a.o.) , theater plays (like ``Proof'' winning a.o. the Pulitzer Prize for theater in 2001), and films (like ``A Beautiful Mind'' about the life of the mathematician and Nobel Prize winner for economics John Nash) since the Year of Mathematics in 2000. This short article is a must for all engaged in the popularization of mathematics and likewise very informative for non-mathematicians.},
