The writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921-1990) has left behind an extensive oeuvre of visual art. The exhibition (Dürrenmatt als Zeichner und Maler) shows a representative selection of his graphic works and drawings. His guiding principle is always the tension between myth and science. The formative influence of childhood in the village, Greek mythology and the Christian faith, the lifelong involvement in astronomy and the theory of evolution are always present. The paintings and drawings are embedded in the context of their historical, scientific, theological and ethical references. The exhibition has been produced by Spiez Castle (Schloss Spiez) The Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel is the cooperating partner. Further information:
