Greeting from the Director

Dear visitors to the Zentrum Paul Klee

With the Zentrum Paul Klee a place of encounter suited to our time should be created. And in this sense we welcome you warmly. Make your acquaintance here with the life and work of one of the most fascinating artists of the 20th century. Immerse yourself in the world of art and so experience a cultural expression which contributes to the quality of our lives. It lies in the nature of art that these meetings are open. You are also actors in this exchange, in the same way as the artists or their works.  

On this electronic platform you find a vast amount of information from the history of the building, to the dates of Childrens’ Workshops during the coming month, up to the database with thousands of works by Paul Klee. Here you can also contact us and we look forward to hearing from you.  

Art however lives from its form and materiality, it shows its true effect only directly. For the direct art encounter you must come to Berne and meet us in the „Monument im Fruchtland“. It’s worth it: In response to the suggestion of the founder families Klee and Müller, star architect Renzo Piano created a place here in which the encounter with art becomes reality. You will be captivated by the inspiring atmosphere, the ease and variety of opportunities for coming into contact with art.  

We are looking forward to your visit!  

Peter Fischer and the ZPK Team
