The Kunstmuseum Bern is devoting an exhibition to Johannes Itten in 2019, when the Bauhaus is celebrating its anniversary. This renowned Swiss artist was a Bauhaus teacher. The exhibition has set itself the goal of presenting his all-embracing utopian vision of uniting life and art. Key pieces in the exhibition are Itten's diaries and sketchbooks, which were only recently researched. They are being comprehensively presented to the public for the first time in interplay with pivotal works from his oeuvre of paintings, offering a new angle on how he sought to understand the world through drawing and artistic work processes.
