Annemarie Schwarzenbach as photographer 18.09.2020–03.01.2021
Writer, journalist, photographer, traveller: Annemarie Schwarzenbach is one of the most dazzling figures in modern Swiss cultural history. For the first time in Switzerland, an exhibition is devoted exclusively to her photographic oeuvre, which comprises some 7,000 pictures taken on long journeys through Europe, Asia, Africa and America. With her social documentary eye, Schwarzenbach explores themes of astonishing poetry and astonishing topicality.
Paul Klee. Ich will nichts wissen 15.01– 30.05.2021
The exhibition refutes the widespread image of the artist Paul Klee as a schoolmasterly teacher and accountant of his work. As a grammar school pupil, art student and soldier in the First World War Klee resisted authoritarian behaviour with ironic detachment. He enjoyed life in private, loved to cook, drank a glass of red wine and smoked a pipe. The exhibition shows Klee's surprising sides as well as his free-spirited and hedonistic tendencies.
