The exhibition Mapping the Collection will be postponed until the end of May. We will announce the new dates as soon as possible.
 
The exhibition Mapping the Collection takes a new look at two influential decades in American (art) history: the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition presents a selection of works from the Museum Ludwig collection by female, queer, and indigenous artists as well as artists of color who are not represented in the collection, as an impetus for an expanded reception of American art. The political and social events and developments of these two decades form the background against which our Western-European conception and reception of American art history is critically questioned.
