Käthe Kollwitz
Permanent Exhibition
After more than 25 years of enthusiastic collecting, the museum's exhibits now comprise about 300 drawings, more than 500 prints, and all her posters and sculptures. Among the drawings - a focal point of the collection - there are some of her most impressive works, many from her later phase when she was predominantly preoccupied with the theme of death. Of her earlier work, three of the less than ten pastel and charcoal drawings that have been preserved and which she produced for the satirical periodical "Simplicissimus" are represented in the museum's collection. Sketch-like preparatory drawings, which throw light on the genesis of important prints, are also part of the collection. A focal point of these works is the history of the creation of her cycle entitled "Peasants' War" (1901-1908) and her series named "War" (1921/1922). In the field of prints all her great cycles are represented. These are milestones not only in the development of Käthe Kollwitz' work, but also in the development of 20th century prints in general. These prints include her earlier cycles "A Weavers' Revolt" (1893-1897) and "Peasants' War" (1901-1908) which were based on literary models, the woodcut series "War" (1921-1922), "Proletariat" (1925) and the later series of lithographs "Death" (1934-1937). In addition, the collection comprises individual works such as her last lithograph "Seed for sowing should not be milled" from the year 1941, which is the artist's legacy in her fight against war and the death of soldiers in action. Recently, the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne succeeded in acquiring very rare prints from an important private collection which had been largely unknown to the general public. Among them are three early self-portraits: two etchings and a large-scale colour lithograph from 1903/4. The "Self-portrait en face" is printed in four colours. Being an experimental leaf, no further prints were made. For this reason, this print is unique and a highlight in the artist's œuvre as well as an example of the museum's successful acquisition policy. The 15 bronze sculptures are of particular importance as almost all the examples shown in the museum are rare early casts. Together with the copy of "The Mourning Parents" in the ruin of the church of Alt St. Alban and the relief on the Levy tombstone in the Jewish cemetery in Bocklemünd, Cologne provides the unique opportunity of an overview of the artist's complete sculptural work. The Kollwitz posters, all of which are represented in the museum, are a rare highlight of the collection. The artist created them above all in the 1920s following her motto "I would like to exert influence in these times". The posters express an anti-war message and emphasise the artist's commitment to social justice, humanity and peace. Another part of the collection which is meanwhile almost complete is Käthe Kollwitz' book illustrations. All the works by Käthe Kollwitz illustrated in our Internet presentation are part of the collection of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Köln.

Neues Museum Weimar
Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900
The former Grand Ducal Museum was built in 1869 – one of the first museums in Germany. In 2019, the Neues Museum Weimar will become an integral part of the Quarter of Weimar Modernism centred around the bauhaus museum. In 2020, it will be joined by a Buchenwald Memorial exhibition on the subject of “forced labour” in the south wing of the “Gauforum”, and the House of the Weimar Republic on Theaterplatz. The new permanent exhibition “Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900” features outstanding international works of Realism, Impressionism and Jugendstil which exemplify a radiant, but ambivalent chapter of art history with numerous references to contemporary trends. Based on the philosopher and cult figure Friedrich Nietzsche, the exhibition will present important works of early modernism in Weimar, including pieces by the Weimar Art School and prominent avant-gardists, e.g. Claude Monet and Max Beckmann, who enjoyed the support of Harry Graf Kessler. The exhibition will also present numerous functional and elegant works designed by Henry van de Velde. A large museum workshop will offer regular and special programmes that invite visitors to actively explore exhibition themes related to handicrafts, such as bookbinding and woodworking. Both the exhibition “Van de Velde, Nietzsche and Modernism around 1900” and the museum-pedagogical workshops in the Neues Museum Weimar are financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the Thuringian State Chancellery, Department of Culture and Art

A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew Knocking on Heaven’s Door
Grand Opening Exhibition: 15 May 2019 at 5:00 pm Muslims, Christians and Jews have a great deal in common. In his new large-format oilstick drawings Eran Shakine shows them appearing together as an indistinguishable trio in actions that are both profound and humorous. He thus reveals both the diversity and the similarity of the three and shows his own highly individual view of these three world religions.

Haus am Horn
The Haus Am Horn is widely regarded as one of the pioneering examples of modern living. This is where the revolutionary ideas of the Bauhaus materialised for the first time in their own unique architectural style. The model house, designed by Georg Muche and presented at the first Bauhaus Exhibition in 1923, is only a stone’s throw away from the Goethe Gartenhaus. Every piece of furniture was handcrafted in the Bauhaus workshops by such renowned Bauhäusler as Marcel Breuer, Theodor Bogler and Alma Siedhoff-Buscher. As the only original Bauhaus construction in Weimar, the Haus Am Horn belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Site »Bauhaus and its Sites in Weimar, Dessau and Bernau«. Due to various alterations carried out over the past century, the Haus Am Horn is now undergoing extensive renovation to return it to its original appearance. The Klassik Stiftung Weimar will reopen the Haus Am Horn to visitors in time for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in April 2019.

Cover for  Roland Fischer - Refugees
We Refugees
Although in recent years television news and journalism have catapulted the flow of refugees as a problem to the front page, the history of the 20th century is riddled with dramatic conflicts and millions of people displaced, exiled, expatriated and living as refugees. The story of humanity itself is built on forced displacement, flight and asylum. This project recaptures the title of a well-known essay by Hannah Arendt published in 1943 in Menorah Journal, a prestigious New York-based Jewish magazine, with the aim of identifying and emphasising the universal nature of exile and the construction of democratic societies based on the protection of the right to asylum. The exhibition aims to reposition the problem of refugees from a complex perspective, steering clear of the sensationalism of the media and pointing to a more historical perspective which takes into account the way in which our societies have been built on the foundations of exile, with exile and through exile.

Turner - The Sea and the Alps
J.M.W. Turner, the world famous English painter, travelled around Switzerland several times in search of spectacular motifs. While doing so, he visited Lucerne repeatedly to study the unique interplay of light and weather, lake and mountains there. He captured his impressions in sketches and vibrant watercolours. These observations and depictions both of the sea, during the crossing to the continent, and of the Alps were of major importance for Turner: in them the beauty and dangers of nature combine directly with the theme of the sublime, which was of fundamental significance for Romanticism. Turner’s enthusiasm for Switzerland was so great that he visited the country a total of six times between 1802 and 1844. With the 2019 exhibition Turner. The Sea and the Alps the Kunstmuseum Luzern is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Kunstgesellschaft Luzern, the supporting association of the Kunstmuseum Luzern.

Constructive Responses to Climate Change
At a time when extreme climatic phenomena, air quality, and industrial impact are among the most pressing issues on the public agenda, the dramatic change in the climate has led to the realization that capitalism has a destructive effect on the environment. Our lifestyle must be reevaluated in order to positively impact both present and future.

Maria Lassnig
The Albertina Museum is marking what would have been the hundredth birthday of Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) with a comprehensive look back upon her career, thus showing impressive key works and masterpieces by one of the most important woman artists of the 20th century. Among the multitude of themes to which Maria Lassnig devoted herself over the course of her life (including self-portraits, science fiction, relationships with people, animals, and technology, and how we relate to violence and war), a dominant golden thread running throughout her oeuvre’s content is the act of rendering her body-consciousness visible. As early as the late 1940s, Lassnig placed her own body at the center of her work—long before physical feeling, body language, and gender relations became central themes of the international avant-garde. She thus marked an important turning point in the history of modern art whose echoes can still be heard today. It was humorously and seriously, wistfully and mercilessly that the artist placed her perceptions of her own self on the painting surface. In this, it was not what she saw, but what she felt became the image.

Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection
Modernisms: Iranian, Turkish, and Indian Highlights from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection explores art from the 1960s and early ’70s from Iran, Turkey, and India via selections from the unparalleled Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art at New York University. Featuring approximately 25 to 35 paintings, sculpture, drawings, and prints from each country, the exhibition will shed light on how Iranian, Turkish, and Indian artists created works that drew on their specific heritages while also engaging in global discourses around key issues of modernity. Illuminating our understanding of art made outside the long-dominant North American–West European axis, the exhibition also features historic exhibition brochures, invitations, photographs, correspondence, journals, and invoices from the Abby Weed Grey Papers housed in the NYU Archives.

Home's Horizons
The Davis Museum at Wellesley College presents Fatimah Tuggar: Home’s Horizons, a major solo exhibition that investigates history, technology, and the home. A multimedia artist born in Nigeria in 1967 and currently based in Kansas City, Missouri, Tuggar has taught and exhibited around the world. Curated by Assistant Curator Amanda Gilvin, this exhibition featuring sculpture, photo-montage, video, and augmented reality (AR) highlights Tuggar’s interrogation of the systems underlying human interactions with both high-tech gadgets and handmade crafts. She seeks to promote social justice by implicating everyone in these systems, while playfully proposing new ways of seeing and making.

Cover for  Senga Nengudi
Senga Nengudi
For close to fifty years, Senga Nengudi (b. 1943) has shaped an oeuvre that inhabits a specific and unique place between sculpture, dance and performance. Before moving to Colorado Springs at the end of the 1980s where she lives until today, Nengudi was mostly based in Los Angeles. In the 1960s and 1970s, L.A. was the capital of an African-American artistic avant-garde with Nengudi as one of its pivotal figures. Her iconic R.S.V.P sculptures, exhibited for the first time in 1976, are made from pantyhose combined with natural materials such as sand and stone. While ostensibly abstract, their biomorphic forms suggest a body under tension, both physical and social. The artist herself describes the works as “stationary performances.” As the title of the growing series—R.S.V.P., short for “Répondez, s’il vous plait” or “Please respond”—implies, these works formulate an invitation and are occasionally activated during choreographed performances. Performance is at the core of Nengudi's practice—a fact that will be reflected by the exhibition. An illustrated catalog in English and German will be published. Curated by Stephanie Weber and Anna Straetmans.
