ART SEEN - Klee & Kandinsky

Mid Morning Mix // Art & Culture // Aug. 19, 2015

Our local artist, Steph Fonteyn, has been our and about on the art scene. So what has she seen this week? Kandinsky, and his friend Klee.

ART SEEN - Klee & Kandinsky

Klee & Kandinsky Exhibition

When: 19/06/2015 – 27/09/2015 (Tue-Sun 10am – 5pm )

Where: Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern - (10 years of ZPK 2005 to 2015)

This exhibition presents more than 180 works of Klee & Kandinsky, the founding fathers of abstract art, with works from 1900 to beyond 1940.

The artists were neighbours and lifelong friends.

The exhibition is structured into eight theme areas:

  • Introduction
  • Around 1900
  • The Blue Rider
  • Music
  • Weimar
  • Dessau
  • 1933
  • New beginning

By pairing the works of these two artists alongside each other, their similarities are accentuated; their mutual influence on each other, and at the same time their differences.

Witness one of the most significant transitions in modern art – from representational imagery to abstract compositions of colours and shapes.

MUSIC in ART – Kandinsky spoke of “inner harmony”. Klee who played the violin, created analogies to musical structures.

How much:

Standard CHF24, OAP CHF22, Students CHF12, Children age 6 to 16 CHF8

Steph's Hot tips:

The Creaviva workshops for kids were an amazing find. They're one hour workshops and they're on every 12pm, 2pm or 4pm.
