Käthe Kollwitz: Bauernkrieg/Peasant War

December 6

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until December 9, 2018

Free

From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz created plates for Bauernkrieg/Peasant War, a series of  etchings that represent the brutal treatment of peasants in sixteenth-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle, and their subsequent humiliation and death.  Although based on historic events, she used this series as a vehicle to criticize and protest the anticipated tragedies that unfolded across Europe during the first half of the twentieth century.  Kollwitz has been, for over a century, a major influence on print and media artists, both for her political commentary and her printmaking technique.

This exhibition, on loan to the Phillips Museum of Art from the permanent collection of Dickinson College’s Trout Gallery, was curated by Dickinson College German major Courtney Rogers ’17.  The exhibition Materials for this exhibition are available in English and German.
