The Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern houses the world’s largest collection of the artist’s works. The multi-special-interest building provides exhibitions, concerts, readings, dance events and numerous other offerings for an international audience, including the Bernese people themselves. In order to further anchor the Zentrum Paul Klee locally and regionally, the pioneering project “paul&I”, which initiates participation processes, is being developed with the support of the Engagement Migros development fund.
The aim is to further develop and strengthen this lively cultural and meeting place. In order to get to know the needs of the local population better, contact is being made with various players such as community associations, neighbours, schools and other organisations. In curated processes, their wishes and expectations of the Zentrum Paul Klee are being collected, with the Bernese population invited to collaborate. Possible programmes are low-threshold offerings such as collaboration with playgrounds, a joint lantern festival with community associations, or the participation of the Bernese in the 15th anniversary of the Zentrum Paul Klee.
“paul&I” sees itself as an exemplary attempt to establish a sustainable exchange between the Zentrum Paul Klee and the public.
