Ex­hi­bi­tion

Map­ping the Col­lec­tion

June 20 - Oc­to­ber 11, 2020

The ex­hi­bi­tion Map­ping the Col­lec­tion takes a new look at two in­flu­en­tial de­cades in Amer­i­can (art) his­to­ry: the 1960s and 1970s. The ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sents a se­lec­tion of art­works from the Mu­se­um Lud­wig’s col­lec­tion by fe­male, queer, and in­dige­nous artists as well as artists of col­or who are not rep­re­sent­ed in the col­lec­tion, as an im­pe­tus for a broad­er re­cep­tion of Amer­i­can art. The po­lit­i­cal and so­cial events and de­vel­op­ments of th­ese two de­cades form the back­ground against which our West­ern Eu­ro­pean con­cep­tion and re­cep­tion of Amer­i­can art his­to­ry is crit­i­cal­ly ques­tioned.

In con­junc­tion with the ex­hi­bi­tion, a video se­ries has been pro­duced which will be up­dat­ed week­ly. Have a look at it here.

HERE AND NOW at Mu­se­um Lud­wig
Dy­nam­ic Spaces

June 6 – Au­gust 30, 2020

For the ex­hi­bi­tion HERE AND NOW at Mu­se­um Lud­wig: Dy­nam­ic Spaces, the Mu­se­um Lud­wig is col­lab­o­rat­ing with the plat­form Con­tem­po­rary And (C&). Found­ed by Ju­lia Grosse and Yvette Mu­tum­ba, C& sees it­self as “a dy­nam­ic space for is­sues and in­for­ma­tion on con­tem­po­rary art from Afri­ca and its Glob­al Di­as­po­ra.” The ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sents th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties and C&’s of­f­line pro­jects and con­nects them with other ar­tis­tic po­si­tions.

For the se­cond edi­tion of the se­ries Schultze Pro­jects, the Amer­i­can artist Av­ery Singer has cre­at­ed a new, site-spe­cif­ic work for the stair­well at the Mu­se­um Lud­wig.
