Sculptureand Drawing – a workshop with kinesthetic exercises
A This guided tour shows how through expressive movements the inner dynamic and dramatic pathos of the graphic and
sculptural works of Käthe Kollwitz can be conceptually realized.
What kind of soul-like disposition, what outer and inner emotions precede the visible gestures? How can they be realized
in one’s own person or experienced with others in physical proximity?
Art works will be selected according to the age group – including adults – so that at any given moment personal access
to the respective work may occur.
This workshop is one focus of the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin. It is also suitable for people with different disabilities.
However, the absence of an elevator in the museum’s building, which is listed as a historic monument, presents a
considerable restriction, particularly for physically handicapped people in wheelchairs.
Drawing - Painting - Sculpture, workshops in the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum
Presentations of ‘mother with child’ are one of the most important subject matters of Käthe Kollwitz’s artistic works.
Contemplating the drawings and sculptures, children compare and scrutinize aspects of childhood in the past and
the present. The creation of drawings with the technique of potato printing makes the programme complete.
