Etel Adnan's work in dialogue with Paul Klee's practice at Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern, June 15–October 7, 2018

With her participation at dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012, the now 93-year-old Lebanese artist all of a sudden has become known to an international audience. Etel Adnan now lives in France and is a leading protagonist of Arab modernism. At first, she discovered Paul Klee through his diaries in the 1960s. His work and his texts made a lasting impression on her artistic work. The exhibition at the Zentrum Paul Klee unfolds a dialogue between the work of Etel Adnan and Paul Klee.
