Lotte Jacobi & Lotte Reiniger

Exhibition at the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Berlin | January 22 to March 20, 2022

As part of its last special exhibition at its current location, the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum is dedi­cated to the work of the photo­grapher Lotte Jacobi and the ani­mated film artist Lotte Reiniger. They success­fully managed to assert them­selves in the male-dominated art world. The special exhibition shows how their careers began in Berlin during the Weimar period and flourished until they emigrated in 1935. They meet for the first time in an exhibition and enter into a thematic and spatial dialogue.

Lotte Jacobi will be presented with her expressive portraits of well-known personalities from the art, theater, dance and film scene. The important, inter­nationally known film­maker Lotte Reiniger will be represented with silhouettes, story­boards, drawings and her silhouette films. Together, they make an exciting exhibition couple whose work doesn‘t require language and is understood inter­culturally.
