Unbroken Topicality – Käthe Kollwitz' impact on laureats of the Käthe-Kollwitz-Preis of the Akademie der Künste (East Berlin)
When considering the awarding of the Käthe-KollwitzPreis since 1960, a specific, very ambiguous tableau of artistic quality and independence, social responsibility and fighting spirit emerges. Gisela Schirmer takes up the subject of the unbroken historical topicality of Kollwitz prizewinners at the Akademie der Künste (in East Berlin).
A special event in the context of the exhibition "In the Spirit of Käthe Kollwitz – Today. Laureats of the Käthe-Kollwitz-Preis of the Akademie der Künste, Berlin"
