Gabriele Mün­ter
Pain­t­ing to the Point

7/15/2018 – 1/13/2019

Gabriele Mün­ter (1877–1962) was a cen­­tral fig­ure of Ger­­man Ex­pres­­sion­ism and the artist group Der Blaue Re­it­er, which was found­ed at Mün­ter’s house in Mur­­nau. Her role as a ded­i­­cat­ed pro­po­­nent, me­di­a­­tor, and long­­time com­­panion of Wass­i­­ly Kand­in­­sky is well known and rec­og­nized. This ex­hi­bi­­tion de­­mon­s­­trates Gabriele Mün­ter’s im­­por­­tance and in­­de­pen­­dence as a pain­ter.

Alexan­der von Hum­boldt, Pho­tog­ra­phy and Le­ga­cy

Pho­tog­ra­phy Room Pre­sen­ta­tion

10/13/2018 – 1/27/2019

The Mu­se­um Lud­wig is tak­ing the 250th an­niv­er­sary of the birth of Alex­an­der von Hum­boldt (1769–1859) as an oc­ca­sion to fol­low Hum­boldt’s traces in the pho­tog­ra­phy col­lec­tion. Pic­tures, whether drawn, print­ed, or paint­ed, played an im­por­tant role in his life and re­search. Hum­boldt re­ceived al­bums of pho­to­graphs as gifts from pho­to­g­ra­phers like W.H.F. Tal­bot and Paul de Rosti. The his­to­ries of th­ese pre­cious, one-of-a-kind al­bums and their jour­neys to the col­lec­tion of the Mu­se­um Lud­wig have been re­con­struct­ed, of­fer­ing a look back at the ear­ly days of pho­tog­ra­phy.
