Press release Opening of the Exhibition

Our exhibition year is starting with Genesis – The art of creation

By way of overture to the series of exhibitions scheduled for 2008, the Zentrum Paul Klee is presenting Genesis – The art of creation, an exhibition that explores the parallels between the production of a work of art and scientific research. The exhibition adopts Klee’s notion of Genesis as a starting point, indulges in some boundary crossing and explores – through works by artists of international renown and scientific objects – the methodological and aesthetic kinships between art’s avant-gardists and the life sciences. In keeping with the ethos of the Zentrum Paul Klee, accompanying the exhibition is an all-embracing, interdisciplinary programme of interpretation. The exhibition has been curated in association with the Centraal Museum, Utrecht.
