The Klee centre on an undulating hill above Bern is housed in a Renzo Piano building that is spectacular and totally impractical. Opened ten years ago, it has consistently made up for the architectural shortcomings by presenting quality exhibitions and this year’s summer show is no exception:
Paul Klee (1879-1940) and Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) are considered to be the founding fathers of abstract art. They also worked together as teachers at the Bauhaus and this exhibition pays tribute to their friendship, but also to their rivalry.
Major works are on loan from the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the National Gallery in Berlin and New York's Guggenheim Museum.
