Kaethe Kollwitz Museum Tips (3)

Käthe Kollwitz Museum

Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) was one of the most extraordinary artists of Berlin.
Her works express understanding and empathy for all the grief and suffering in the world. They are a cry of protest against oppression and injustice. This is unfortunately as relevant today as in Käthe Kollwitz's lifetime.

There is no shortage of museums in Berlin, and you cannot see al of them. Still, in my opinion, a visit to the Käthe Kollwitz Museum is unlike any other art museum, and it should not be missed.

There are 200 drawings and graphic works, woodcuts and posters. There are whole series of works related to one theme: war, the weavers' uprising, the peasants' uprising, the memorial to Karl Liebknecht, and a collection of self portraits encompassing 40 years of creation, in different age periods.

The war and uprising works concentrate on the human aspects, on the suffering and despair leading to the revolts, and on the even greater despair they leave behind, always ending in pain and mourning. Death is a frequent figurative character in the drawings, separating mothers from their dead children and children fom their dying mothers.
The numerous self portraits are not an expression of narcissism, but rather a deep and inquisitive look into the human soul, not trying to hide or embellish anything.

The museum is located right next to Kurfurstendamm, and is very easily accessible, only a few blocks away from the Europa Center, but tucked away in a quiet side street.
By all means, visit it!!

Käthe Kollwitz Museum

It's three stories of Kollwitz' work, and information about her life and times. She is really one of the most incredible artists around--idealistic, graphic, and intense. i was excited to see a Kollwitz stature, too. You should also hang around her old neighborhood in Prenzlauer Berg, too. Maybe by osmosis you can absorb her greatness and funnel it to your own devices. maybe not!

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum....

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum. This is definitely not a happy museum but so deeply touching that you'll remember the feelings her drawings and sculptures evoke for a long time to come! A favorite of mine is her sculpture titled 'The Lovers' go see it and tell me what you think.
Käthe Kollwitz is one of the most important german woman in the last century. Her art work needs no written explaining on the side.
