DESCRIPTION

The new display of the Ludwig Museum`s collection derives from the dual role of the Artist, i.e. the phenomena that artists are often both the creators and the main characters of their own works. As different roles result in different aspects, the Artist can either be a creator with magical powers, a suffering human being, a socially accepted man or woman or a designer who approaches the society with a critical or a rather ironical eye. They present their topic from a subjective viewpoint, a distant perspective, or they even offer a complete social vision. Along these artistic positions and strategies the exhibition showcases a selection of both the emblematic and the lesser-known art pieces of the Ludwig Museum`s collection.
