The Mu­se­um Lud­wig is cele­brat­ing its an­niver­sary

The year 2016 marks three an­niv­er­saries: In 1946, Josef Haubrich do­nat­ed his col­lec­tion of mod­er­nist art­works to the ci­ty of Cologne and thus laid the foun­da­tion for the mu­se­um. Af­ter its found­ing in 1976, when Peter and Irene Lud­wig agreed to do­nate 350 works of con­tem­po­rary art, in 1986 the new mu­se­um build­ing was opened. Enough rea­sons to cele­brate with a spe­cial pro­gram of ex­hi­bi­tions and events.

Ex­hi­bi­tion

HERE AND NOW at Mu­se­um Lud­wig: Home Vis­it

Novem­ber 5 – 27, 2016 (ev­ery Sa­t­ur­day and Sun­day)

The se­cond pro­ject of the new se­ries un­der the pro­gram­mat­ic ti­tle Home Vis­it will be an ex­hi­bi­tion tak­ing place in pri­vate homes through­out the ci­ty. Six in­ter­na­tio­n­al artists have been in­vit­ed to de­vel­op new site-spe­cif­ic works that en­gage with se­lect­ed do­mes­tic spaces. The un­con­ven­tio­n­al for­mat pro­vides an oc­ca­sion to ex­amine our no­tions of pri­va­cy, in­ti­ma­cy, and hos­pi­tal­i­ty as well as new forms, pos­si­bil­i­ties, and lim­its of their rep­re­sen­ta­tion.
Par­ti­ci­pat­ing artists: Mar­wa Ar­sanios, åyr, Nëil Be­lo­u­fa, Pia Camil, Cal­la Henkel & Max Pite­goff, Mélanie Ma­tran­ga.
