About the event

What  do we as­so­ci­ate with Pab­lo Pi­cas­so? And what as­so­ci­a­tions  with him did the Ger­man peo­ple have in mind dur­ing the post-war  years, when he was at the height of his fame? Far more than we do: This  is the main idea of the ex­hi­bi­tion, which re­veals a for­got­ten  breadth, ten­sion, and pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of th­ese ap­pro­pri­a­tions. It  deals not on­ly with the artist, but with his au­di­ence, which  in­ter­pret­ed Pi­cas­so’s art in very dif­fer­ent ways in the  cap­i­tal­ist West and in the so­cial­ist East. The Ger­man Pi­cas­so  was di­vid­ed, but this di­vi­sion al­so sti­m­u­lat­ed the re­cep­tion:  Be­cause ev­ery­one ques­tioned his art, it had some­thing to say for  ev­ery­one. The  ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures po­lit­i­cal works, such as the paint­ing  Mas­sacre in Ko­rea (1951) from the Musée Pi­cas­so in Paris. Th­ese are  shown along­side some 150 ex­hibits that re­flect the im­pact of  Pi­cas­so’s work.
