On Saturday evening, October 7, 2023, the Family Night will take place for the 13th time. Between 5 p.m. and midnight, there will be a colorful range of unusual and creative events for families in all districts of Berlin and the surrounding area that cost little or nothing.

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum is pleased to be involved for the first time and to offer a fairy tale evening in which lesser-known fairy tales are artistically told. It is about themes that also play an important role in the work of Käthe Kollwitz: War & Peace, Motherly Love, Cohesion, Community, Justice, Standing up for something. Strong, assertive female figures appear.

Fairy tales from Albania, Uzbekistan and Mongolia will be freely told at this cozy family evening, titled “What We Dream Of.” The stories are about the search for peace, community and cohesion. Käthe Kollwitz’s work is also about these deep longings that connect us humans. A mother waiting for her son’s return from the war, a cunning girl who stands up for justice, and a boy who turns the customs of his country upside down: Naemi Schmidt-Lauber and Sven Tjaben tell of such characters, accompanied musically.
