The contemporary art museum founded by the Ludwigs, a couple originally from Aachen, invites visitors to discover a significant slice of their vast collection as well as current works.

A couple of dedicated collectors

Peter and Irène Ludwig began their collecting careers in the 1960's in New York. Their insatiable passion led them to build a contemporary art collection of 14,000 works covering a wide range of schools of artistic thought with an emphasis on American art of the 80's and 90's. Their collection is now exhibited in no fewer than 12 museums around the world. The "Ludwig Forum für internationale Kunst" in Aachen, the couple's "homeland", brings together a large number of works that illustrate the different periods of the collection.

An ever-changing collection

The Ludwig Forum has set up quarters covering 6,000 square metres of modular space in the former premises of an umbrella manufacturer. The Ludwig collection shows its own pieces – with strong points like "Supermarket Lady" by the American sculptor Duane Hanson and works by Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein and Franz Gertsch. It also fills in the blanks as needed when a certain artistic current is missing, for example, art videos. Temporary exhibits provide additional space for contemporary works, performances and installations.

Opening hours:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday: noon - 6 pm
