Käthe Kollwitz Museum

Käthe Kollwitz Museum

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum exhibits a collection of works by the artist Käthe Kollwitz. It was located in Fasanenstraße from 1986 until early summer 2022.

The museum is currently closed. From autumn 2022, the museum will once again welcome visitors in its new premises in the theatre building of Charlottenburg Palace.

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum was founded in 1986 at Fasanenstraße 24 and is dedicated to the life’s work of one of Germany’s most important artists. Kollwitz achieved worldwide fame and created unique works of art against war and social injustice throughout her life.

After 36 years, the museum is now saying goodbye to Fasanenstraße and moving to the prestigious theatre building at Charlottenburg Palace. The three-storey early classicist building was built according to the plans of Carl Gotthard Langhans (1732-1808), the architect of the Brandenburg Gate. In her future place of work, too, the museum’s primary tasks will be to cultivate Käthe Kollwitz’s artistic oeuvre and to convey its significance for the present.

From October 2022, the Berlin Kollwitz Collection will initially be presented at Spandauer Damm with a newly designed permanent exhibition on the ground floor of the building. It is expected that special exhibitions will also be shown on the first floor from 2024. As at its previous location, the museum will in future be dedicated not only to the life and work of Käthe Kollwitz, but also to her contemporaries and their influence on contemporary art. In the Museumsquartier in City West, the museum will reposition itself in Berlin’s cultural landscape as a place of education.
