Students visit Paul Klee museum in Bern

Posted on: 6th June 2014 | Category: Music, theater and art

Recently Surval visited the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano, and housing some 4000 pictures.  The students shared the privilege of spending the morning admiring the largest collection of Klee’s work on display worldwide. In addition to the permanent galleries, we were also able to view the special exhibition, “The Journey to Tunisia”, commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the legendary trip to Tunis that the three artist friends Paul Klee, August Macke and Louis Moilliet undertook in April 1914. This was a rare opportunity see together important paintings in modern history of art that are not in the Museum’s permanent collection.

The girls were particularly impressed and inspired by the modern, open-plan layout, and other aspects of the Zentrum Paul Klee, including the book and souvenir shop. Many left with gifts for their friends and families.

After a picnic lunch, we set off in small groups to explore the capital of Switzerland, wandering leisurely through the historic old town of Bern, which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its beauty. Among the abundance of attractions to visit, the girls were all drawn to the Clock Tower, and particularly enjoyed exploring the local produce markets. Returning to the bus, visible all around were smiles and more than the occasional shopping bag!
