Ur­su­la—That's Me. So What?

March 18 – Ju­ly 23, 2023

Ur­­su­la Schultze-Bluhm, who is known sim­p­­ly as Ur­­su­la, was one of the most im­­por­­tant Ger­­man artists of the se­­cond half of the twen­ti­eth cen­­tu­ry. She was born in Mit­ten­walde, Ger­­many, in 1921 and died in Cologne in 1999. Ur­­su­la’s life and work of­fer an un­­con­ven­­tio­n­al nar­ra­­tive of ar­tis­tic in­­de­pen­­dence. Mu­se­um Lud­wig’s ex­hi­bi­­tion Ur­­su­la—That’s Me. So What?, which is the first com­pre­hen­­sive mu­se­um show on the artist in over thir­­ty years, of­fers a fresh look at her oeu­vre.

For the third edi­tion of the Schultze Pro­jects se­ries, Min­er­va Cue­vas (*1975 in Mex­i­co Ci­ty) has cre­at­ed a new site-spe­cif­ic work for the large front wall of the main stair­way at the Mu­se­um Lud­wig. The name of the se­ries re­fers to Ber­nard Schultze and his wife Ur­su­la (Schultze-Bluhm), whose es­tate is ma­n­aged by the Mu­se­um Lud­wig, and in whose me­m­o­ry pe­ri­od­i­cal­ly since 2017 an artist has been in­vit­ed to cre­ate a large-scale work for this pro­mi­nent lo­ca­tion.
