Starting March 24, 2017, parts of the Photographic Collection will be showcased in a special Photography Room within the permanent collection of the Ludwig Museum in an effort to gradually present the collection. To expand our exhibition area, we are also simultaneously opening the FOTO LAB, a space in which children and adults can participate and experiment.
Visitors of all ages will be able to experience how a camera obscura—the original camera—works, pose in front of a photo mural, or put together their own exhibition using fifty reproductions from the Photographic Collection!
The inauguration of the FOTO LAB was made possible with the support Pixum, an online photo service based in Cologne. This space will animate the Museum Ludwig’s Photographic Collection in a number of ways while also making it more accessible.
