Paul Klee. Landscapes
"A short journey into the land of better understanding"
25 February - 10 June 2018

Paul Klee, whose oeuvre comprises more than 10,000 works, painted a large number of landscapes, as a look at his index of works reveals in which the term 'landscape' features in a great many titles. Only very seldom, however, is it related to a concrete place as could otherwise be expected from a more traditional understanding of this genre.

For Paul Klee, a landscape is not a real but an imaginary place that picks up on the general notion of landscape to take "a short journey into the land of better understanding". With some 40 works the exhibition presents a small typological overview of Paul Klee's landscapes, ranging from View over a River (1912) and Memory of Romanshorn (1913), to Castle Landscape with Black Lightning (1920) and Oriental Feast (1927) - a glowing, red landscape at sunset.

The exhibition is being held in conjunction with the Collection of Modern Art at the Pinakothek der Moderne where 'Paul Klee. Construction of Mystery' will run parallel from 01.03 - 10.06.2017. Both exhibitions will be presented with a joint programme of accompanying events.

To mark the two exhibitions, the symposium "A short journey into the land of better understanding" will be held in cooperation with the Pinakothek der Moderne on 19. + 20.04.2018.
