IKON

Especially the Käthe Kollwitz exhibition at the contemporary art gallery was really moving and touched me. It is not only the atmosphere of the gallery, which supported this sad and dramatic exhibition, it was also thought-provoking for me. Kollwitz art oppresses the viewer, because it let the viewer feel the pain of the portrayed person. Her picture “War” touched me most, because it portrait that there are no winner after a war.

The silence of the visitors made it even more moving.

When I looked at the pictures of a mother holding her dead child in her arms, a mother and her toddler entered the exhibition and the child was mumbling the same word over and over again. No designed sound could have been more matching than this innocent child. The picture of Kollwitz seemed so realistic that you could feel how the mother is still –desperately - holding on to her child and still hears his voice in her head.
