Exhibitions in Europe

BROKEN LETTER - contemporary art from Arab countries

In Western countries, contemporary art from Arab countries is almost unknown and often regarded as a hoard of calligraphy and ornament. Being the first comprehensive exhibition outside of Arab institutions, "BROKEN LETTER" presents the most important positions of an extremely dynamic Arab modernism. The majority of exhibits - dating from a period between 1960 and now - were created by artists from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran. The title of the exhibition announces a programme: "Broken Letter" shows a diversified cultural landscape that has developed beyond calligraphic patterns - though it often and indirectly refers to the traditional art of handwriting by both adopting and undermining it in a playful way. "BROKEN LETTER" thus shows art that faces its own history and successfully breaks with clichés of national "identities".
Exhibition in Darmstadt, Germany.

PAUL KLEE in the Rhineland

A great presentation of 120 paintings and drawings of this eminent artist, reflecting his relationship to the region Rhineland. For the very first time an exhibition is dedicated to this special phase in Klee's works. The exhibition conveys an exciting overview from the early creative period until his emigration to Switzerland.

Computer history in the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum
