“‘Construction of Mystery’ follows Paul Klee’s path as a ‘thinking artist’ who systematically explores and transcends the boundaries of the rational in his work. At the centre of the exhibition is the 1920s, a time in which Klee responded to the challenges of the new technological world and its impact on the creativity of the modern artist. As a Bauhaus master, Klee questioned the dominance of rationalism and strove to balance understanding and feeling, construction and intuition. – Essays by Régine Bonnefoit, Christine Hopfengart, Wolfgang Kersten, Oliver Kase, Cathrin Klingsöhr-Leroy, Christoph Wagner, Stephen Watson, and Gregor Wedekind provide new insights into Klee’s work.”
