talkPaul Klee. Genius and Regulationby Gregorio Botta

Carlo Scarpa hall
free admission subject to availability

They called him the Wizard of Bauhaus, Buddha or even the Good Lord. Who was Paul Klee really and why did he claim to be elusive?

Klee was dominated by a powerful inspiration and a relentless creative fury, which he regulated and educated with the most methodical of lives: a very rare case among his fellow artists. Through his Diaries and the prolific theoretical writings he left behind, Gregorio Botta reconstructs and interweaves the formation of a man and the birth of an aesthetic that marked the century.
