Paul Klee. Space Nature Architecture

During his time at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau Paul Klee made new spatial constructions and fantastical architectural designs inspired by Cubism and the Constructivists. With the dissolution of central perspective, completely new dimensions opened up for modern artists.

Aside from his engagement with new possibilities for spatial representation, Paul Klee turned his attention just as intensely on the reproduction of phenomena of natural growth. In the area of tension between the naturally grown and the artificially built, Zentrum Paul Klee is devoting its summer exhibition to two central, supposedly opposed aspects of Klee’s work.

The exhibition presents about 120 works from the collection in a new context.
