sinopsis

Portrait of the Artist looks at her work through the exploration of self-portraits and portraits of working women, her two great series concerned with social injustice: Ein Weberaufstand (A Weavers’ Revolt, 1897) and Bauernkrieg (Peasants’ War, 1908), the ever-present imagery of death, especially a mother’s grief, and finally the theme of war and remembrance after her younger son, Peter, had been killed at the beginning of the First World War.
Kollwitz was an intensely passionate individual, in personal relationships and politics, an artist who pushed hard in the direction of equality for women in all walks of life. Her emphasis was often on what was distinctive about women’s experience, including the fundamental nature and potency of maternal love. She believed that art could be a force for good in society.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Portrait of the Artist Käthe Kollwitz at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (13 September – 26 November 2017).
