ALL ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
With Sophie Passmann
Sophie Passmann selects lots of really beautiful objects in her life that start with the first letter of her surname: Poetry Slam, Politics, Philosophy or Paula Modersohn-Becker. Not to forget that is a past master of most other disciplines, too. She was a radioshow host at 1LIVE, wrote gags for Jan Böhmermann and has developed a real feel for bestsellers in which she takes a very clear position – be it towards “old white men” or her own generation of Millennials, whom she mercilessly and ironically exposes in her “Komplett Gänsehaut”.

PUBLIC GUIDED TOURS
WEDNESDAYS 7 P.M., THURSDAYS 8 P.M., SATURDAYS 5 P.M.
There are many different sides to Paula Modersohn-Becker’s oeuvre; in parts it is radical and ruthlessly direct. In her works she challenged the customary way of seeing of the time and preempted key artistic trends in Modernism. The one-hour overview given in the guided tour offers loads of information on the individual artworks and the exhibition concept, too.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE EXHIBITION
Our digital education services showcase the highlights of the exhibition in a highly varied presentation with exciting encounters, exclusive background information, and surprising cross-references. This offers you an insight into the world of Paula Modersohn-Becker’s image and shows just how radically she ignored the social and artistic conventions of her day and therefore pre-empted central Modernist tendencies.

NEW: THEMES TOURS
EVERY 1ST AND 3RD SUNDAY IN THE MONTH, 5 P.M.
On the back of a highly varied presentation and exciting comparisons between images a group of works or a specific aspect of her oeuvre are intensively discussed. You will discover how Paula Modersohn-Becker portrayed herself self-confidently as a woman and artist and broke all the social taboos of her day. The pictures of children and portraits are quite astonishingly in terms of radical thrust, directness of representation, and technical refinement. By Zoom
