The life of Kathe Kollwitz is portrayed through her diaries and letters. Kollwitz was an artist who worked with graphic media - lithography, etching and woodcuts, and was aware of the problems of the urban working class and wanted her art to communicate directly with an audience.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
