Exhibition and Event Series: GOYA - Yo lo vi / Ich sah es / I saw itFriday, August 19, 2022 – Sunday, November 6, 2022 10:00 am – 6:00 pm CEST/GMT+2
Sammlung Scharf Gerstenberg
For the third time, Bard College Berlin has won the award "Eine Uni ein Buch," an initiative supported by several German foundations. The book we picked is Goya's "Los Desastres de la Guerra," a series of prints published in book format that depict the atrocities of the Napoleonic Wars in Spain. The themes are frightfully contemporary and relevant. Together with the Scharf Gerstenberg Collection BCB organized the exhibition of Goya's works and an events program that reflects on topics such as war, migration and exile.
The exhibition shows around three dozen original prints and all four print cycles by Goya, including "La Tauromaquia" (1814-1816) and "Los Disparates" (1819-1823). The exhibition will run from August 19 to November 6, 2022.
