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.

Agnes Pelton
Desert Transcendentalist
Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist is the first survey of this obscure American painter in over 24 years. Born to American parents in Stuttgart, Germany, Pelton (1881-1961) and her family briefly lived in Basel, Switzerland before returning to the United States in 1888. A graduate of the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, she began experimenting with abstraction in the early 1900s in New York, eventually exhibiting in the Armory Show of 1913 at the invitation of Walt Kuhn. Intentionally moving away from the “mainstream” arts community, Pelton eventually settled in Cathedral City, California. She painted conventional desert landscapes to make a living, but it was her abstract studies of earth and light, biomorphic compositions of delicate veils, shimmering stars, and atmospheric horizon lines, that distinguished her work. A believer in numerology, astrology, and faith healing, Pelton’s abstract compositions propelled her into an esoteric world epitomized by the Transcendental Painting Group (1938-1942), a short-lived group that promoted abstract, non-objective art. Although Pelton received some attention during her lifetime, she has been relatively unknown within the field of American Art. Approximately 40 – 45 works will comprise this exhibition shedding light on Pelton’s artistic contribution to American Modernism, while examining her practice against a broader, international framework of spiritual and esoteric abstraction. Accompanied by a fully illustrated exhibition publication edited by the organizing curator of the exhibition, Gilbert Vicario with contributions by Elizabeth Armstrong, Director, Palm Springs Museum of Art; Dr. Michael Zakian, Director, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, Pepperdine University; Dr. Susan Aberth, Associate Professor of Art History; Coordinator, Theology, Bard College; and Dr. Erika Doss, Professor, Department of American Studies, University of Notre Dame.

Fiction and Fabrication
Photography of Architecture after the Digital Turn
Fiction and Fabrication gathers nearly 50 artists who build and manipulate images of architectural objects and spaces. Marking 30 years since Photoshop was invented, and digital tools invaded photographic production, this exhibition focuses on the imagery of architecture as a central theme to an expanded practice of photography in contemporary art. From the seminal works of Andreas Gurski, Thomas Ruff, Jeff Wall or Thomas Demand to the fictional creations of Beate Gütschow, Oliver Boberg or Isabel Brison, the show offers a panorama of architectural photography that evades objective approaches and favours fictionalised takes on reality between cinematic gazes, image deconstruction and more politicised narratives. At a time when digital tools preside over the making of architectural images for media consumption, fictions stemming from the art world appear here as a critical alternative that questions and expands the concept of architecture.

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

Yoko Ono
Growing Freedom / Liberté Conquérante
Yoko Ono (b. 1933) is a visionary, pioneering artist with a career that now spans over fifty years. During the 1950s in Tokyo, she introduced original questions concerning the concept of art and the art object, breaking down the traditional boundaries between branches of art. She has been associated with Conceptual art, performance, Fluxus, and happenings of the 1960s, and is one of very few women to have participated in these movements. Through her works of instructions and performances, as well as her activism, she has created a new kind of relationship with spectators in general and fellow artists, including her late husband John Lennon, inviting them to play an active part in the creative process. She also brings together two cultures – Eastern and Western – which extend and strengthen each other in continuous innovation.

Vitality of Colour
Derided by Hitler and a close friends of Matisse, Hans Purrmann (1880-1966) insisted on the decorative qualities of the painting throughout his life. With the ambitious exhibition "The Vitality of Colour", works by on of Germany's significant modernist artists are being shown in Denmark for the first time. Colourful landscapes, still lifes executed with heavy brush strokes, azure-coloured walls and the relations between light, hue and colour in paintings of interior, harmonious colour contrasts, decorative nude studies and portraits are some of the works you will experience at the Exhibition.

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.

Gustave Caillebotte
Painter and Patron of Impressionism
Caillebotte’s painting “Paris Street; Rainy Day” (“Rue de Paris, temps de pluie”), completed in 1877 and now an icon of Impressionism, is coming to the Alte Nationalgalerie. It is considered one of the artist’s principle works, and is a showpiece of the Art Institute of Chicago. The monumental painting has rarely travelled to Europe in the past, and this will be its very first appearance in Berlin. The fact that “Paris Street, Rainy Day” is being shown here is certain ly a sensation, and results from a unique international cooperation: the Art Institute of Chicago will be loaned Édouard Manet’s “In the Conservatory” for a major monographic exhibition; in return, the Alte Nationalgalerie will be able to show this masterpiece by an artist who is otherwise not represented in their collection. Thereby both German and American audiences will benefit from the unique opportunity to visit exhibitions with rarely available works.

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.

Frans Hals Potraits: A Family Reunion
This exhibition is the first devoted to the family portraiture of Frans Hals (1582/83–1666), one of the foremost painters of the Dutch Golden Age. Organized by the Toledo Museum of Art and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels, the exhibition was prompted by the Toledo Museum of Art’s acquisition in 2011 of Frans Hals’s Van Campen Family Portrait in a Landscape, as well as the recent conservation of Brussels’ Three Children of the Van Campen Family. These two works originally formed one composition, separated for unknown reasons likely in the late 18th century or early 19th century. The exhibition reunites the sections of the Toledo/Brussels painting, where it will be shown with the three other family portraits painted by the artist, and includes loans from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, the National Gallery in London, the Cincinnati Art Museum and other distinguished collections. The exhibition will travel to Brussels following its Toledo debut. A scholarly publication accompanies the exhibition.

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.

Yigal Gawze
form and light
Form and Light is a photographic exhibition depicting Tel Aviv's "Bauhaus" architecture of the 1930s. The work captures the spirit of the "White City" – designated by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. It is based on Yigal Gawze’s photographic series fragments of a style. By focusing on the buildings' fragments, the colour photographs examine the local adaptation of the International Style, brought by European educated architects to the shore of the Mediterranean. The sharp perspectives and dynamic compositions that are inherent to this work, echo, in their own way, the avant-garde photography of the 1930's. The use of colour, accentuated by the local light, underscores the attributes of the modernistic architecture and the city it has formed. The work is a tribute to past ideals and present renewal and it conveys the essence of the special encounter that takes place in Tel Aviv – between an architectural style originating in Europe and the Mediterranean glare. On the occasion of the 100 years of the Bauhaus and its influence in the architecture of Tel Aviv's "White City", the Israeli Embassy in Portugal and the EDP Foundation present the exhibition Form and Light by the photographer Yigal Gawze at Power Station Building.

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.
