Constructing Klee #1: Chance (2015)

On Sunday, I've been to the Paul Klee-exhibition at the Pinakothek of Modern Art with my sisters. I love Klee since I got to know him a few years ago.

An expressionist and surrealist, Klee (1879-1940) experimented with bright colours and mathematical/architectural features. He worked with the Bauhaus group in Weimar and was a professor at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf.

The curators of the museum built an app to construct one's own Klee-painting (you can download it for free via the App-/Playstore, it's called "constructingklee").

I'm using it to combine it with this week's Dogwood challenge: Door, a symbol of transition, a door or a gate provide a passage way. As I am moving out soon, this week I will show my flat's door as I saw it during last few years.

#1: Chance (2015): In 2015 I had a look around the flat but didn't think I would get the chance to rent it - flats are rare in Munich and there's always someone interest in them who has more money than a student. It unclear to me how many people had already visited the flat, I was not sure if I could pay the rent. Nevertheless I wanted this flat badly because I was living in a shared flat with a horrible person. It was a little bit of acrobatics to negotiate with the landlord, but in the end I got it.

Used features: tightrope acrobat, floating architecture, crosses & columns, scaffold of a new building.
I really like Klee's work too. Studied the Bauhaus at University. I really like the masterpiece that you have created here.
I hope you will have happier memories of the flat you are moving out of soon, than of the one before.
