Werckmeister, Otto Karl
During the Weimar Republic (1919-1933), Paul Klee pursued a double career as a Bauhaus master and as a freelance artist on the market. In this context, his painting Grenzen des Verstandes from 1927 and his essay Exact Experiments in the Field of Art (1928) have programmatic significance. In both the picture and the text, Klee explores the debates of that time on the technological orientation of modern art.
