Relocation 2022-2024

The modification and relocation of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in the summer of 2022 to the Theaterbau at Charlottenburg Palace and the subsequent construction measures for the future exhibition floor on the 1st floor are funded by:



Like Immanuel Kant, Käthe Kollwitz came from Königsberg. Her family was familiar with Kant’s philosophical teachings. Kant’s philosophy shaped her worldview and her values. The cooperation between the museum and the association Friends of Kant and Königsberg build on this special connection.


Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH has been a steady partner for many years: our museum is tightly connected with the Museumsdienst, the Museumsportal, and the Museumsjournal, as well as the Long Night of Museums.
Together our museum and the Museumsdienst design and coordinate our museum’s educational program. Guided tours and workshops can thus be booked through us as well as through the Museumsdienst Berlin.


The association promotes artistic and cultural education and creates opportunities for children and teenagers to engage with Berlin museums. All holiday offers and Family Sundays of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum take place through cooperation between the museum and the association. They can be booked directly through Jugend im Museum (Youth in the Museum).


The Association of Sculpture Museums brings together more than 40 museums in Germany and Austria that focus primarily on sculpture. Among them are many wellknown artists’ museums, such as the Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin, the Ernst Barlach Houses in Güstrow and Hamburg, as well as the Gerhard Marcks House in Bremen or the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum. The two Kollwitz museums in Berlin and Cologne are also members.


The Graphic Collections Network comprises graphic collections in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Together, the collections in the network draw attention to art on paper. This transnational platform was initiated by the Graphische Sammlungen NRW network.


Art on paper includes drawings and watercolors as well as prints, such as woodcuts, etchings, or lithographs. Exhibiting and storing art on paper requires special conditions. Despite their very great importance, graphic holdings are therefore exhibited less frequently than other genres of fine art.


The richest treasures are stored in graphic depots — for art lovers as well as for scholars. The drawings bring the viewer very close to an artist, and in the prints the evolution of ideas and forms can be traced and explored.


The TheaterGemeinde Berlin (Theater Community Berlin) was founded in 1963 as a non-profit association. Its aim is to promote understanding for all areas of culture, to strengthen general interest in culture, and to encourage participation in cultural life. They provide reduced-price tickets, cultural information, and forums for mutual exchange and reflection.

The Theater Community Berlin sees itself as a mediator between the approximately 150 stages in the German capital, the artists, and the audience. With over 12,000 members, it is one of the largest and most experienced visitor organizations in Germany. Nationwide, it is connected with 23 other local theater communities in the Bund der Theatergemeinden (Association of Theater Communities).


Kulturvolk Berlin is an association devoted to culture. It brings Berliners closer to the city’s cultural life and sees itself as a facilitator for all those who are passionate about the world of the stage. The association encourages individuals to discover this world for themselves. Hence, the Freie Volksbühne offers individually tailored packages and enables cultural experiences at particularly favorable prices.

Due to close cooperation with theaters, operas, and many other cultural providers in Berlin and Potsdam, the association can purchase larger ticket allotments at favorable prices and pass this advantage on to its members. Thus, the association is able to offer tickets that are up to 40% below the box office price. Furthermore, there are often still tickets available to members for coveted events that are quick to sell out.


In cooperation with the Berlin Committee for UNESCO Work, the artistic competition “Sei Käthe — Be Kollwitz!” was announced in 2017. With around 300 works submitted by students, it was a great success. The award ceremony took place on the 150th birthday of Käthe Kollwitz on July 8th at our museum. The prizes for the winning students were donated by the Bürgerstiftung Berlin.


Subscribers of the art magazine receive the artCard with each issue, which allows them to save on admission to over 300 museums. Owning a valid artCard allows visitors to pay a reduced admission price at the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Berlin.

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne is one year older than its sister museum in Berlin, founded in 1985 on April 22nd, the 40th anniversary of the artist’s death. The museum is sponsored by the Kreissparkasse Köln, which laid the foundation for the extensive collection as early as 1983 with the acquisition of a bundle of 60 drawings. In addition to presenting works from its own collection, the museum also shows contemporary art in alternating exhibitions in its 1,000 m² attic in the Neumarkt Passage.


“… the Rüdenhof is finally restored! It looks so trusting in its Maria-Theresian yellow under an azure sky, the balcony beckons — asking that one bring a chair and enjoy the wide view of the castle and lake. Everything is again as it was in the summer 1944, when Käthe Kollwitz moved into her two little rooms in the upper floor.”

The work of Käthe Kollwitz is appreciated and cherished worldwide. But only one place where the artist’s personality can still be authentically experienced today has survived war and destruction: her last residence in Moritzburg.



A fascinating blog that explores the facets and art of Käthe Kollwitz in both French and German.


In the immediate vicinity of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum on Kurfürstendamm is the studio of Jeanne Mammen, which has remained largely unchanged since the artist’s death. The State Museum Berlin offers guided tours of the studio as well as a 360° tour with audio commentary.
