Brief history of the “Ludwig Forum Aachen”
(excerpt from ludwigforum.de/en/)

The first presentation of young American Pop Art in 1968 in Aachen by Peter and Irene Ludwig hit a home run. This led to the founding of the “Neue Galerie – Sammlung Ludwig”, directed by Wolfgang Becker. Soon after the Museum Ludwig in Cologne opened its doors. It advanced to being the flagship of the collection and its highlights. The objective of the “Neue Galerie” later “Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst” was in contrast directly connected to the often bold developments of the Ludwig collection. Due to the collector’s enthusiasm with the “imminent expression of a specific generation’s attitude to life”, soon-to-become world famous works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Duane Hanson and Chuck Close became part of the collection.

Today, the collection and the Ludwig Forum are presented as a kaleidoscope of a world that has closed ranks step by step during the last thirty years. Its strength lies in the open-minded approach to important art works from five cultural regions: Europe, North America, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia.
