HERE AND NOW. Anti-colonial Interventions in the Museum Ludwig


The exhibition HERE AND NOW. Anti-colonial Interventions at Museum Ludwig (8 10 to 05 02 2022) opens up other perspectives of knowledge on the museum's permanent collection. We accompany the exhibition by taking an anti-colonial stroll through the permanent collection of Museum Ludwig together with the participating artists from Latin America. Which Latin American artists can be found in the collection? How do artists of Classical Modernism - usually from Europe - reproduce the exoticizing view of the global South? Which works need to be critically questioned, which offer counter-models? Eurocentric and institutionalized perspectives of knowledge are deconstructed and made accessible via new sensual forms of education.

In the seminar, the participating artists will talk about their interventions in the museum and enter into a dialogue with the visitors. Participants are invited to intervene themselves and continue the dialogue on social media under #MLInterventions.
