Woodcut-like? 23 Woodcuts from Four Centuries – Gemäldegalerie
Are woodcuts woodcut-like? Do they really correspond to the cliché ideas that are still associated with the medium today? What possibilities does the technical process offer and how have artists used these possibilities at different times? To accompany the large-scale “woodcut” exhibition in the Kupferstichkabinett, students of the Technische Universität Berlin are tackling the subject in parallel with a condensed cabinet exhibition in the Gemäldegalerie.
