Nur englische Beschreibung:

The exhibition Paul Klee. Alle origini dell’arte (Paul Klee. At the Origins of Art), curated by Michele Dantini and Raffaella Resch, will be hosted by the MUDEC in Milan from 31 October 2018. It features a wide selection of Klee's works on the theme of “primitivism” and offers an original reassessment of this concept, which in Klee embraces pre-classical periods of Western art (like that of Pharaonic Egypt); epochs previously considered "barbaric" or decadent, such as those of Late Antique, Early Christian, Coptic and early medieval art; and lastly African, Oceanic and Amerindian art. The show is promoted by Milan City Council-Culture and 24 ORE Cultura–Gruppo 24 ORE, which is also producing it, and will present around a hundred works by the artist, on loan from major museums and private collection in Europe. It will also benefit from the extensive collaboration of the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern. The exhibition will run until 3 March 2019. The concept of “primitivism” in Klee assumes different characteristics from those commonly associated with the historical avant-gardes. An interest in everything that was "wild" and "primitive" in art was awakened in Klee during his first stay in Italy, from autumn 1901 to spring 1902, when he discovered Early Christian art in Rome. After his trip to Italy Klee considered himself an "epigon", literally last born, a tardy heir of a glorious civilization in decline. He would never rid himself of this conviction and it led him, as he recounts in his Diaries, to transform his disappointment into "style". It was this experience of the Antique, which caused him a certain amount of suffering, that triggered Klee's penchant for mockery and pastiche. The artist sought in "primitive" artworks and archaic repertoires the art of distortion or “satire in Grand Style” that permitted him to break away from the monumental, old-fashioned manner on which his training in Munich was founded. Klee was extremely well-versed in the history of Western art in all its many and varied aspects. At almost every moment in his career he engaged with one or another traditional element in a new and unexpected way and drew on figurative memories without indulging in nostalgia. In his work this tribute was closely interwoven with parody, due to a need dictated both by history and temperament.
