Changing Perspectives presents several of these correspondences. One object from each of the Dresden museums has been invited into dialogue with one or several works of the Kupferstich-Kabinett. This informal assemblage juxtaposes famous masterpieces with little known works, and objects of utility or documents of historical value with autonomous works of art. Highly refined and theoretically sophisticated compositions may be found beside workshop sketches, studies and reproductions.
The comparisons aim at looking at these works from numerous vantage points, thus allowing different perspectives and questions to emerge. These connections, at times overt, at times hidden, show that there is yet more to discover in the Kupferstich-Kabinett than preliminary drawings and
reproductive prints. Changing Perspectives invites visitors
to explore the vibrant dialogue between Dresden’s collections at a single place.
