While some museums remain shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are now reopening as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
The German Expressionist artist Ernst Barlach is best known for the staunchly anti-war sculptures he began producing in 1916. This display of some 230 works at the Albertinum in Dresden (8 August–10 January 2021), arranged to mark the 150th anniversary of Barlach’s birth, extends from his student days in Dresden, through his vilification as a ‘degenerate artist’ during the Nazi era, to the revival of his reputation after his death in 1938. Find out more from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden’s website.
