New Ac­qui­si­tions and Works from the Col­lec­tion, with Two Films by James Scott

19.1. – 14.4.2019

David Hock­ney (*1937) and Richard Hamil­ton (1922–2011): two greats artists as Bri­tish and as fa­mous as the Bea­t­les. The Mu­se­um Lud­wig is now high­light­ing their sub­ver­sive be­gin­n­in­gs with rare­ly ex­hi­b­it­ed works on pa­per and two films by James Scott (*1941) which doc­u­ment the cre­a­tion of th­ese works, of­fer­ing a deep­er un­der­s­tand­ing and ex­pand­ing them in­to a new me­di­um.
