Ludwig Museum Koblenz

The relatively young Ludwig Museum, which was inaugurated in September 1992 with the exhibition "Atelier de France," is dedicated to contemporary art and especially to contemporary French art. The basis of the permanent collection is primarily German and French art after 1945, which the famous collector couple Peter and Irene Ludwig from Aachen have collected and donated or loaned to the museum. In addition to its exhibition rooms on four floors, the Ludwig Museum also uses the adjacent "Blumenhof," which is an ideal exhibition space for striking three-dimensional works. Among the museum's holdings here are César's "Thumb" and the installation "Site of Memory and Forgetting" by Anne and Patrick Poirier, who developed this work especially for this location when the museum was founded.

Through its focus on contemporary French art, the Ludwig Museum closes a crucial gap in the German museum landscape and performs a unique mediating function that also benefits young artists - not only in France.
