An exhibition with works by Olav Christopher Jenssen, Paul Klee, Jonathan Lasker, Brice Marden, Henri Michaux, Mark Tobey, Cy Twombly and Christopher Wool.
Based on Paul Klee’s pictorial thinking, the Zentrum Paul Klee is organising an exhibition on the meaning of script, sign and line in the artistic process. Writing transfers not only content but is also form. Its structure, horizontally or vertically placed lines, as well as its letters, correspond to certain norms. At the same time writing is determined by the individual, spontaneous gesture of the author. It consequently unites concept and spontaneity and is therefore interesting with regard to the artistic process. For the exhibition other important artists of the 20th century besides Klee have been selected who in their different ways take up the aspects of script, symbol and line and therefore also examine the tension between concept and spontaneity.
