Forays through the Collection
– From Expressionism to Love
9 February 2019 to 9 February 2020


The next annual presentation of our collection reflects a twin focus: firstly, it focuses on the significant expressionist holdings and 19th-century landscape paintings of the Kunsthalle zu Kiel. Secondly, this year’s realigned collection presents selected works in unusual combinations: visual motifs such as the beach, night-time, love, childhood or wildlife form the starting point for a forage through the collection, bringing exciting finds to light. The exhibition is showing around 120 works from the fields of painting, sculpture, printing, photography and video art.

Picasso’s Universe: The Vollard Suite
23 March 2019 to 30 June 2019


With the exhibition Picasso’s Universe: The Vollard Suite, the Kunsthalle is showing a monographic exhibition of the artist for the first time in Kiel since 1973. Picasso’s famous set of prints, the Vollard Suite, comprises 100 etchings, which he produced between 1930 and 1937 at the suggestion of the Parisian art dealer and publisher, Ambroise Vollard. They deal with central themes in Picasso’s art such as the relationship between model, artist and work, the relationship between man and woman, and the myth of the Minotaur. This makes it a key body of work for the understanding of Picasso’s oeuvre. The Kunsthalle will exhibit one of the few complete sets of this print series worldwide.
