Named after a Paul Klee print from 1918, this exhibition is devoted to the curious art of the book cover, more specifically the “little world” of philosophy and theory publishing in which Klee’s imagery has proven itself so enduringly popular. A special section of the exhibition will be dedicated to a similarly iconic image familiar to us from many a book cover, namely Caspar David Friedrich’s Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog. Featuring new work by Zachary Cahill, R. H. Quaytman, and David Schutter.
