Reading time: one minute

Our world continues to bring many new challenges. Living and working in our dynamic and unpredictable environments makes resilience a skill that we all could benefit from.

Let’s turn to the art world and have a look at how artists deal in their lives and artwork with uncertainty, stress and come out on top – or not! 🤷🏽‍♀️

How did now-famous artists like Christo, Jaspar Johns, the Cologne artist Mary Bauermeister or the Peruvian late-comer Teresa Burga cope with life’s ups and downs and remain true to their artistic vision 💫 Do artists have a secret or ritual that gives them courage and the inspiration to keep on painting, sculpting, and creating in face of huge challenges?
Maybe artists have more grit 😜

I invite you to join me to think about these questions in an interactive 1st Thursday ArtTalk. We’ll reflect and engage with great artwork while strolling through the galleries of a world-class modern Museum Ludwig– currently no masks are required and there is air conditioning😉

Do you have any questions? Then by all means, do 👉🏽reach out! info@art-talks.de

Looking very much forward 👏🏽 to seeing new and familiar faces in Museum Ludwig on Thursday September 1st!

Artful wishes 🎨
