The Museum of Modern Art announces the first-ever New York City museum retrospective devoted to Käthe Kollwitz, and the largest exhibition of her work in the United States in more than 30 years. On view at MoMA from March 31 through July 20, 2024, Käthe Kollwitz will present a focused exploration of the artist’s career in approximately 120 rarely seen examples of her drawings, prints, and sculptures drawn from public and private collections in the US and Europe. Organized chronologically, the exhibition will trace the development of Kollwitz’s work from the 1890s through the 1930s, a period of unprecedented turmoil in German history marked by the social ills of industrialization in the late 19th century and the traumas of war and political upheaval in the early 20th century. Crucial examples of the artist’s most important projects will showcase her commitment to socially critical subject matter, and key selections of preparatory studies and working proofs will highlight her creative process.
