Die Tunisreise ist sicher eines der beliebtesten Kapitel der Kunstgeschichte. Als Paul Klee mit den Malerfreunden August Macke und Louis Moilliet im April 1914 nach Tunesien aufbricht, erwartet ihn eine Fülle von Eindrücken: Tunis, St. Germain, Hammamet, Kairouan, die Menschen, Architektur und Szenerie des Landes bewegen die drei Künstler zu einer Vielzahl von Aquarellen und Zeichnungen. Sie lösen sich vom anekdotenhaften Orientalismus des 19. Jahrhunderts, abstrahieren ihre Motive, wandeln sie in ornamentale Formen und kristalline Strukturen. Ihre überraschenden Bildfindungen stellen einen Gipfelpunkt der frühen Moderne dar. Paul Klee geht am weitesten. Ihm wird die Farbe zum wichtigsten Gestaltungsmittel, er löst den Bildgegenstand in Farbflächen auf, das Bildgefüge wird ihm zum Raster, das er mit Arabesken und Chiffren überzieht. 0Exhibition: Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern, Switzerland (15.03.-22.06.2014).

Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.
