Paul Klee. Animality
From some they are a best friend, for others steak on a plate – or both? Our relationship with animals is diverse and contradictory. New insights into the behaviour and abilities of animals call our dealings with them into question. Paul Klee also thought about the nature of animals and the ways in which they differ from humans, and critically reflected on these issues in his art. For the first time the exhibition Paul Klee. Animality illuminates his vision of the relationship between humans and animals. The artist observed ‘human' types of behaviour in animals and ‘animal' behaviour in humans, and often reversed the traditional roles.
