The Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin’s Westend, located in the heritage-listed artists‘ house of the sculptor Georg Kolbe (1877-1947), is a functional, Bauhaus-influenced ensemble from 1928 with an interior sculpture garden. Founded in 1950 as a foundation for the development, preservation and mediation of Kolbe’s artistic legacy, the house today sees itself as a place of encounter, exchange and research. The museum promotes a lively artistic dialogue with exhibitions, events, and educational programs on Modern and Contemporary art, that link historical questions with the present. The museum houses an important collection of Modern art from the environment of Georg Kolbe. Core themes of the museum are classical modernism in the medium of sculpture, with a special focus on the female sculptors of this period. Dance and photography, the architecture of the Neues Bauen and, in particular, research into Georg Kolbe’s work during National Socialism also play a major role in our museum’s programme.

The Georg Kolbe Museum is committed to polyphony, tolerance, diversity and mutual respect as the basis of a democratic society.   

In this sense, the Georg Kolbe Museum positions itself against all forms of hate speech, violence and discrimination such as racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, ableism, classism, violence and discrimination based on age, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and other forms of intersectional discrimination.    

The Georg Kolbe Museum is a place of mutual respect and consideration.
