Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945) is today regarded as the most important German female artist of the first half of the 20th century. Even during her lifetime, her work exerted its charismatic fascination throughout the world. A large number of her poignant drawings, prints and sculptures were created as a result of direct engagement with her personal experiences – moments of happiness as well as blows of fate. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the artist’s death, the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Köln focuses on the personal aspects of her work. Two exhibitions with different focal points will highlight how Kollwitz elaborated these personal aspects with emotional clout to give them universal validity. The spring show will focus on the theme of farewell and »letting go«, while the summer exhibition will put the aspect of »love« centre stage.
