BERN.- Two masters, four themes, eight pictures. Poetry here, drama there. Irony here, sensuality there. Romanticism here, spirituality there. Paul here, Pablo there. The interactive exhibition «Paul und Pablo» by the children’s museum Creaviva invites guests to take part in a journey of creative dialogue beginning on the 6 June 2010.

The exhibition «Klee meets Picasso» at the Zentrum Paul Klee highlights the differences and similarities between two of the most renowned painters of the 20th Century in a unique confrontation of themes and techniques. Simultaneously, the children’s museum Creaviva is using this encounter as a platform for playful interaction with Paul and Pablo in the generous Loft where everyone is invited to participate and assimilate creative dialogue with modern art.

Whilst still alive, Klee and Picasso met on only two occasions ‐ the first on 26 October 1933 in Paris and the second on 27 November 1937 in Bern when Picasso visited Klee in his modest attic studio. The unique artistic encounter in which Paul and Pablo meet once again, not personally, but through their outstanding works of art, leaves the creative dialogue to be constructed by the public.

In partnership with the School of Design Bern and Biel, under the direction of Stefan Gelzer, a class of 17 upcoming display artists developed various concepts for interactive installations to build a bridge to modern art for a multigenerational public in a uniquely playful way. Amongst creative stations for big eyes and small hands, the interactive exhibition also offers soul food for curious minds. With the help of an accompanying brochure, interested guests are offered the opportunity to dive deeper into diverse aspects of the artistic confrontation between Paul and Pablo on the quest to learn more about the artists widely regarded as the two great opposites of modern art.

For guests interested in experiencing and exploring the artistic directions of Klee and Picasso in a more practical manner, the «Open Studio» welcomes young and old from June to September, daily at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. Themes vary on a monthly basis concomitant with current exhibitions.
