Tastendes Schreiben mit Eva Demmler: Was hätte der Maler damals wie heute zu sagen?
Max Beckmann - one of the most famous German painters. He tirelessly portrayed and questioned himself and his time in self-portraits. The eventful history of Germany in the first 50 years of the 20th century is reflected in this work: the First World War, the period between the wars, the rise of National Socialism and political ostracism, exile - first in Amsterdam, then in the USA. What do these self-portraits tell us today? And what do we have to tell when we look at them?

In a three-hour workshop with director Eva Demmler, we will use creative writing techniques to compose texts for postcards that Beckmann could have written then and now. And then send them to the museums where the self-portraits hang today.

Those who have already attended the "Kitchen Talks" pay the reduced price.
