After 36 successful years, the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Berlin has left its founding location in Charlottenburg’s Fasanenstraße and moved to the Theaterbau at Charlottenburg Palace.
On September 24, 2022, the museum will now open at its new location with expanded spatial possibilities after a short renovation phase.
From now on, the museum and its collection on the first floor of the building will be presented in a new presentation under the Kollwitz quote “And yet it is art”.
We celebrate the 155th birthday of our house artist on July 8, 2022, and dedicate ourselves to the printmaking work of Käthe Kollwitz in her honor.
