Zentrum Paul Klee and Kunstmuseum Bern dedicate their joint exhibition "The Revolution is dead. Long live the Revolution!" to the 100th anniversary of the 1917 October Revolution in Russia. It is the only exhibition in the anniversary year that focuses both on the starting point of the revolution – that is, abstraction as an artistic concept and Constructivism′s aesthetic revolution – and on the impact of the revolution on artistic representations of reality.
