Event description

Description

Establishing herself in an early 20thcentury art world dominated by men, Käthe Kollwitz developed a vision centred on women and the working class, and her work – which encompasses painting, etching, lithography, woodcuts and sculpture – deals with themes of social injustice and Berlin’s disenfranchised populations during the Weimar period and the rise of fascism. In 1919 Kollwitz became the first woman elected to the Prussian Academy of Arts, but in 1933 the Nazi authorities forced her to resign from the faculty and her work was removed from museums. Art historian Patrick Bade, who has written monographs on numerous 19th- and early-20th-century artists, explores the artist’s life and work.

This is the 3rd lecture in a series of 4 lectures looking in depth at the work of four German artists, selected from across a span of 600 years. You may also be interested in:-
