Referring to a statement Paul Klee famously made in 1920 in his “Creative Confession”: “Art does not reproduce the visible; rather it makes visible”, the exhibition features thematically related treasures from Zentrum Paul Klee′s unique collection.
The act of painting is an active endeavour. Likewise, as it looks at a painting, the viewer′s eye also engages in an active process. Transcending simple object recognition, the visual act is transformed into one of productive perception, be that of movements, both physical and in terms of colour prefigured in Klee′s drawings or paintings, or of their compositional and structural principles. A focal point in the exhibition consists of groups or series of works that enable viewers to experience the process of ‹making visible›, both intellectually and physically.
