„Käthe at Ku’Damm“

Project for school classes

In 2022 the Kollwitz Museum ist moving! But before Käthe Kollwitz leaves the Ku’damm, the current school project is devoted to the wonderful surroundings with its prominent neighborhood and many historical and artistic traces. The students go through an interactive rally in Berlins’ West End. What places of art were there in the early 1900s? What is their connection to Käthe Kollwitz? Historical cross-connections are made and comparisons are draw between now and then.  

The question-and-answer principle accompanies the walk: from simple decision-making questions and search requests to creative tasks in drawing or photography. In small groups and equipped with tablets, the students follow the instructions in the “Actionbound” app. The answers and results will be collected and then reflected on together with the leading art educators.

Exhibition talk:

Life and work of Käthe Kollwitz

Permanent exhibition “More than a life”

The “More than a Life” tour presents the permanent exhibition with drawings, graphics and sculptures by Käthe Kollwitz in chronological order.

The introduction on the ground floor brings Käthe Kollwitz’s Berlin to life, while the following two floors are devoted to her artistic work. In this way, the life, artistic career and associated attitude of Kollwitz become comprehensible in the context of contemporary history. Continuities can be identified, such as working in cycles or her growing interest in the motif of the working class – as well as ruptures and new beginnings e.g. abandoning of the artistic medium of etching, the discovery of woodblock prints or her changing understanding of violence.

Depending on the interest of the group, the guided tour can have a historical, social or artistic focus.

Hunger, war and social injustice – those are the topics Käthe Kollwitz repeatedly dealt with. Which topics are moving us in Berlin today? Are there similarities to the times in which Käthe Kollwitz lived? After a tour through the exhibition, students develop their own ideas on problems of our times and sketch eye-catching statements.
