Curatorial Tour Exhibition Lotte Laserstein

Event for Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin

Lotte Laserstein is one of the most sensitive portraitists of early modernism and is considered to have gone largely unnoticed and be worthy of discovery. She was already an aspiring artist at the age of 30, but her success story came to a brutal end in 1933, when she had to leave Berlin and spend the years of exile in Sweden. You have the special opportunity of rediscovering the work of this extraordinary painter with the curator Dr. Annelie Lütgens.

The exhibition has come from the Städel Museum in Frankfurt to the Berlinische Galerie. In Berlin, a unique show of her work is presented featuring further portraits, landscape paintings, late works, and paintings from her artistic environment of the 1920s and 1930s. A special aspect of her work thus shines through – that she portrays above all women of the new era and of all classes in natural poses, defying the normative ideas of gender roles at the time.
