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.
