A talented draftswoman who enjoyed experimenting, Kollwitz’s main concern was to create an artistically sophisticated work. Working slowly, numerous attempts to find motifs and the constant change of printing techniques characterize Kollwitz’s path to the finished work.
The cabinets of the new collection presentation in the theater building are thematically structured and also follow the chronology of Kollwitz’s life. Together, the students discover what was arguably Berlin’s most important artist after 1900 through conversation and viewing the artworks. In addition to biographical and artistic issues, we address topics such as the situation of children or the opportunities for a woman in the Weimar Republic or the sad topicality of the poster “Never again war!” and compare differences in artistic modes of expression.
