Paul Klee. Animality

Exhibitions
From
until
For the first time, a Paul Klee exhibition provides a glimpse of the relationship between humans and animals. As a precise observer, he often discovered the animal in human beings, and the human being in animals, and reversed the traditional roles. In his works humans «turn animal», while animals display human traits. Like the authors of antique animal fables, Klee comments on political events through wildlife, and his zoological scenes humorously show us human behaviour. Paul Klee thought intensely about the roles and nature of animals and human beings and commented critically upon their qualities. The exhibition persuades us to think about the relationship between people and animals today.

Taxidermy exhibits from the Naturhistorisches Museum Bern augment the exhibition.
