This weekend marks the fourth Graphic Arts Weekend to be held this year as part of the Graphic Arts Year, first launched in 2009. This weekend will see a host of events held by numerous collections of art in the graphic medium across Germany, Austria, and German-speaking cantons in Switzerland. Participating institutions aim to showcase to the public the nature of their work as well as special aspects of their collections.
The Kupferstichkabinett - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - will also be taking part in the weekend at its home at the Kulturforum. Free extra tours through the current show 'Karl Friedrich Schinkel. History and Poetry', which stretches over large parts of the Kulturforum including the Kupferstichkabinett's own rooms, will bring the public closer to the art of drawing in a German-language tour entitled 'Drawing - the medium of art and science'.
Dates: Sat and Sun, 10/11.11. at 2 p.m.
Meeting point: info desk in the Kulturforum foyer
