        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.
