Personal guided tour “More than a Life”

The “More than a Life” personal guided 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.

Slow Art – Guided tour in German

Every last Wednesday each month |  18.00
Duration: circa 1 hour
Number of participants: minimum 3, maximum 7 persons
Price: 3 € plus reduced admission each person

Since April 2019, the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin has offered a new participatory guided tour courtesy of the international Slow Art Movement.

By looking at a few art works in great detail and subsequently discussing them as a group, participants learn how to appreciate individual works in a new light. Discovering independently is not only fun, it also trains the gaze and builds curiosity for further personal exploration within a greater variety of artistic expressions.

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum invites you to take a slow look at two selected works by Käthe Kollwitz every last Wednesday each month at 6 pm. Priority will be given to works that are not shown in the permanent exhibition but rather held in the depot. The event takes place in the museum’s viewing room.



It is also possible to book a guided Slow Art tour in English.
Appointment by advance reservation
