On loan, exchanged, re-hung
Not all the exhibits shown in this essential presentation are actually being exhibited at the museum. As a print collection that regards itself as the artist’s ambassador we loan her works to museums worldwide. Besides, we change the hanging for reasons of conservation and rearrange the collection for each special exhibition to present the works of our artist in their relevant context.
Come and visit us
The aim of our virtual museum experience is to give visitors a first impression of Käthe Kollwitz’ work. However, a digital experience cannot fully make up for a physical visit to the collection. Engage with the powerful work of the artist by paying a visit to the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne. We look forward to welcoming you personally.
