The key for your visit to the digital archive of the Zentrum Paul Klee -- not just for scholars and art connoisseurs

Besides being an artist, Paul Klee (1879–1940) taught for more than a decade at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau before taking up a professorship at the Düsseldorf Academy of Fine Arts. He developed his own painterly form and design theory, which is now being published in complete form for the first time. Along with a general introduction to the source material, the publication features the twenty-four chapters of his teachings as well as a selection of artworks on the themes of “nature,” “movement,” rhythm,” color,” and “geometric construction.” This allows us to see central aspects of Klee’s artistic work as well as his teachings. Thanks to a four-year research project funded by the Swiss National Foundation (SNF) and the city of Bern’s Paul Klee Stiftung, the approximately 3,900-page manuscript, containing lectures, exercises, and sketches, has now been viewed, organized, facsimiled, and transcribed. This e-book also allows readers to access the research project’s online databank at, including direct links to Paul Klee’s teaching notes. The e-book combines text, image, and archival data in a way that makes Klee’s theory transparent, clear, and easy to understand.
