Special exhibition from November 7, 2020 till March 7, 2021; extended until June 6, 2021
Käthe Kollwitz gives hands a special meaning in her works. She often depicts them excessively large so that they dominate the subject. Touching, feeling, protecting, demanding, supporting, praying: contacts of various kinds can be found in her drawings, prints and scultptures. They show comfort and love, or they tell of suffering and danger.
The special exhibition follows this important motif with over 40 works from all of Käthe Kollwitz’s creative periods.
