COLOGNE.- The Museum Ludwig announces that it will reopen on May 5.

Of course, all the necessary precautions will be taken to protect visitors and staff. Due to the museum’s generous exhibition spaces, it is easy for visitors to maintain a safe distance. The museum attendants have been thoroughly trained on the new situation and will ensure that there are not too many visitors in any area of the museum. The total number of visitors must not exceed 400 people at any given time. Staff members and visitors will be required to wear masks covering their mouth and nose. The checkout and cloakroom staff will be separated from the visitors by Plexiglas panels. Floor markings in front of the ticket desk and cloakroom will help maintain a safe distance.

The museum will resume its regular opening hours of Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and every first Thursday of the month until 10 p.m. Regular admission costs 11 euros, and reduced admission is available for 7.50 euros.

The presentation Silent Ruins: F. A. Oppenheim Photographs Antiquity in the photography room will be on view until June 14. This will be followed by Joachim Brohm’s series Ruhr Landscapes starting on June 27.

From June 6 to August 30, the Museum Ludwig will present the exhibition HERE AND NOW at Museum Ludwig: Dynamic Spaces. The focus of the exhibition is the participatory library of the C& Center of Unfinished Business, a long-term project by the art magazine Contemporary And (C&), which uses publications and videos to make the traces of colonial power relations and their effects up to the present day visible. In addition, video works by the artist group The Nest Collective (Kenya) and CUSS & Vukani Ndebele (South Africa) from the C& Commissions video platform will be shown, as well as works by the African Diaspora artists Nkiruka Oparah and Frida Orupabo.

The exhibition Mapping the Collection is scheduled to take place from June 20 to August 23.

Mapping the Collection reexamines two influential decades in American (art) history: the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition presents a selection of works from the Museum Ludwig collection by female, queer, and indigenous artists as well as artists of color who are not represented in the collection as an impetus for an expanded 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.
