Serving as a prologue to this wide-ranging exhibition project is the presentation “Paul Klee: A Collection Travelling Around the World”, which opens on October 13, 2018. An ensemble of 88 works by Paul Klee, who was defamed by the National Socialists as “degenerate”, forms the foundation of the Kunstsammlung. Central to the show are the culturally and politically motivated travels of the Klee collection to nearly 40 places around the world between 1966 and 1985. Explored in an epilogue, the final exhibition gallery of “museum global”, is the way in which, around 1960, the canon of Western modernism was expanded via contemporary positions through new exhibition formats such as Documenta, as well as through the intensive collecting strategies of museums.
