One highlight of the exhibition year will be the colourful work of the Lebanese artist Etel Adnan. She discovered Paul Klees work and diaries in the 1960s, and he was a lasting inspiration for her work. Since her participation in dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012, her work has enjoyed international recognition.

In close collaboration with the France-based artist, the Zentrum Paul Klee is developing a dialogue between her work and Paul Klee’s. Special attention is focused her engagement with poetry, calligraphy web art and colour field painting. This is only the second exhibition in Switzerland by this significant representative of modern art in the Arab world.
