COLLECTION AT THE LUDWIG MUSEUM
Contemporary photographs, prints and time based media (approximately 30 % of the museum’s collection) form the most delicate part of the museum’s collection which focuses on Eastern and Central European art from the 1960s to recent days. These unique objects need permanent and regular care. In the collection, we work with a wide range of contemporary artworks of which 75 pieces are video based.
