 Paul Klee Zentrum

The Zentrum Paul Klee will not be an art museum in the traditional sense. It is to become the leading centre of competence worldwide for research into and the mediation and presentation of Paul Klee, his life and his work, as well as the way in which his art is received. Given the diversity of Paul Klee’s artistic activities the Centre will therefore not limit itself merely to showcasing Klee’s pictorial work but act as a platform for interdisciplinary forms of artistic expression.
For this centre of excellence on all matters relating to Paul Klee a traditional museum is not what the renowned, award-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano had in mind. Renzo Piano's in-depth involvement with the complex project commission and the terrain on the eastern outskirts of Bern gave him the idea of creating a spacious island of green from which the architecture would emerge in the form of three undulating waves. In its entirety the Landscape Sculpture created as a result becomes a cultural destination.

Paul Klee was a fore-runner of non-representational art. A very popular artist, he worked most of his life as an artist and teacher at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany before and during the oppression of artists during the Hitler era. He is known for his off-beat sense of humour and the deceptively child-like nature of his art. He once wrote, "I want to be as though newborn, to be almost primitive." Working more and more child-like withpaint, he eventually moved into a kind of painting that was solely about colour, shape and texture.
