Ubiq­uity And Sol­i­dar­ity

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

World-renowned and iconic artist Käthe Koll­witz’s prints and sculp­tures still re­sound with rel­e­vance to­day, de­spite hav­ing been cre­ated in the early 20th cen­tury in sol­i­dar­ity with the work­ing class and in re­sponse to the tragedies of two world wars. Hav­ing lost her own son and grand­son to World War I and World War II re­spec­tively, Koll­witz was a staunch paci­fist and ap­pealed for the end of vi­o­lence through her works. The Käthe Koll­witz Mu­seum (this page), on the site of where Koll­witz her­self lived for more than 50 years, spans four floors and of­fers a tour through Koll­witz’s life and the events that in­spired her time­less works.
