Extra Tours
In Dialog with Picasso
Tours at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Picasso’s late work reflects his own earlier creative periods whereby he returned to familiar themes. At the same time, his late work was influenced by contemporary developments and was created in dialog with the works of other artists – from the Old Masters to pop art. Many examples of this can be found in the collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

A series of tours by the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Museum Barberini in Potsdam demonstrates these connections.

Sign up for all tours except the tour at the Museum Barberini through the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s information service

Picasso, the Legacy
Documentary by Hugues Nancy and Olivier Widmaier Picasso<
ARTE France 2013, 110 min

When Pablo Picasso died in 1973, work began on creating an inventory of the nearly unbelievable number of works in his estate: Almost 2,000 paintings, over 1,000 sculptures, thousands of ceramic objects, and countless etchings, lithographs, and drawings needed to be recorded. Records from family archives and as-yet unseen film material show how Picasso secured his posthumous fame.

Discussion and Concert
Soundscapes: Harmony and Deconstruction
Thursday, April 25, 2019, 7 p.m.

Many aspects of Picasso’s late work demonstrate a relationship to music, including the tension between the internal and the external, references to tradition, and fragmentation as attributes of modern perception. Many pictures address music directly, whether through instruments such as flutes or dance-like movement. The importance placed on drawing in Picasso’s work is analogous to the wind section in chamber music.

Kohlhaas – mein – Vater. Eine Versuchsanordnung
Sunday, May 19, 2019, 7:00 p.m.

Christoph Ransmayr, author
Reading


Christoph Ransmayr will read from his short novel Kohlhaas – mein – Vater. The prize-winning author describes the astounding parallels in the life of his father to Heinrich von Kleist’s Michael Kohlhaas in a manner similar to an experimental protocol. Ransmayr’s father had achieved an eminent position and a reputation and was later accused of embezzlement and libel. For all that, in the words of Kleist, this “extraordinary man would have been considered the model of a good citizen.” The author used this unpublished story as his acceptance speech for the Kleist Prize in 2018.

A dialogue between theology and art history

During the time of the Counter-Reformation, both the church and Europe’s absolutist rulers used paintings as a visual manifestation of their power and magnificence. With their theatrical scenes, exalted style and sensuous themes, baroque compositions appealed to viewers’ emotions.
