Zentrum Paul Klee opens the exhibition ‘Paul Klee. Humans Among Themselves’

What is the meaning of community, and what forms does it take? What are authority and power based on? Paul Klee is often perceived as an apolitical artist. The exhibition Paul Klee. Humans Among Themselves contradicts this perception and shows that a social or political dimension is often hidden behind the facade of his works.

The exhibition is complemented by choreographies by the inclusive dance group BewegGrund. In Klee’s works human beings often look like an alien species that is yet to be explored. The artist observes them with an almost ‘zoological view’, he inquires into the essence of human society and analyses its behaviour in an ironic way. The exhibition Paul Klee. Humans among Themselves illuminates this particular aspect of Klee’s
