Paul Klee – Unstable Balance
Paul Klee - Unstable Balance brings together 120 works, including paintings, papers, prints, drawings and personal objects of the artist. The exhibition, conceived by Zentrum Paul Klee, from Bern (Switzerland), especially for Brazil, will be welcomed by ccbbs from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte from February to November 2019.
Paul Klee – Unstable Balance was an exhibition designed especially for Brazil, in retrospect. The exhibition brought together 120 works from the collection of Zentrum Paul Klee de Berna, the city where the artist was born, lived his childhood and where he returned in 1933, after a period in Munich, Germany. Zentrum Paul Klee brings together more than 4,000 works produced by Klee and is responsible for looking after the artist’s work.
In 10 modules, paintings, papers, prints, drawings and personal objects of Klee, the exhibition announced the trajectory of the artist and thinker. Paul Klee is an artist to whom you cannot simply attribute a particular style. ‘I am my style,’ he recorded self-confidently in his diary in 1902.
The set of selected works covered the entire period of Klee’s artistic life, presenting rare and little-known works from his youth, still at the end of the 19th century. It was therefore a fundamental exhibition about the artist.
The show was exhibited at the CCBBs of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, from February to November 2019.
