ArtTalk Nil Yalter: Exile is a hard Job

Museum Ludwig

Rewind to the last ArtTalk: 300 Years of American Art. We engaged with a huge variety of artistic outcomes resulting from mass immigration and pioneer movements in the US. Museum Ludwig’s new show provides a convenient bridge to our current realities. Nil Yalter’s delivers a powerful artistic investigation of immigration here in Europe. A different kind of pioneer, she experimented with technical tools – like video – way before it was considered in. She integrates the voices of her subjects in a totally unique and lyrical manner. A must-see first retrospective

Red, White and Blue: American Independence Day and ART USA!

Museum Ludwig

The next 1. Thursday ArtTalks is American Independence Day, July 4th!

This is an opportunity to dive into art of USA folk, those that emigrated there, and continue what we began in the 300 Years of American Art show.

Why this fascination about so many Americans? What is fact? What is folklore? Can we discover artistic patterns and shared personality traits in the art of American men and women?

Museum Ludwig has a new hanging of their world-famous Pop Art collection and it looks fantastic. The American Abstract Expressionists are begging to be re-examined with the question – what is “great” about these “American” artistic expressions (besides their size)?

Come join us and find out about the pioneer energy in all of us! The 4th of July is the day of days to take another look, to engage and to ask and answer questions together. Is there a common American spirit or approach? And does this make for great art?

Good news for all Cologne citizens! In 2019, on the long Thursdays (open till 10 p. m.), you’ll get free entrance into all exhibitions. Bring address proof. Non-Kölners get a reduced price after 5 o’clock.
