Dear Ise.
On the 100th birthday of Isot Kilian.


Actor Isot Kilian was Bertolt Brecht's assistant dramaturge and director at the Berliner Ensemble and also the poet's last lover. She later described this formative period of her life as “a wonderful and intense time, when dreams were still being fulfilled and the future looked very bright”. The exhibition includes documents from the Akademie der Künste’s Isot Kilian Archive, such as letters, photos and personal notes.
