Ludwig Galerie
Oberhausen, Germany

With an ambitious and continuously alternating program of exhibitions, Ludwig Galerie presents loans from all over the world within the neoclassical castle complex according to three main subject areas.

The Ludwig Collection with its extensive range of works is presented in Oberhausen within the concept of unusual and overlapping themes. The basis was established by the activities of the collecting couple Peter and Irene Ludwig, who demonstrated an innate solidarity with all world cultures spanning from antiquity to the present day.

The exhibition program was originally inaugurated with the presentation of Götter, Helden und Idole (Gods, Heroes and Idols, 1998). Further exciting shows were dedicated to approaches to mourning and the world of pots and vessels. Living Stones presented Mother Nature as an artist and human skill in terms of designing with hard stone. CHINA – Tradition und Moderne (Tradition and the Modern Era) laid claim to the international aspect of cooperations. There is an extensive exhibition on the topic “The gesture” in planning to the 20th anniversary of the LUDWIG Gallery 2018.

The Popular Gallery on the other hand is dedicated to the presentation of illustration, poster art, caricature, comics, photography and other genres attributed to the applied arts. Important positions from Gottfried Helnwein, Janosch, Ralf König, Ruthe, Sauer, Flix or book illustrations from Sabine Wilharm oder Cornelia Funke have been shown as well as works from Wilhelm Busch. Renowned photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Peter Lindbergh, Thomas Hoepker, Jim Rakete, Elliott Erwitt, Eve Arnold, Herlinde Koelbl, Regina Relang and Sam Shaw have also been optimally set in scene in the finely proportioned exhibition spaces.

However, the public has neglected the many real problems faced by people living in these flats: low income, jobless, disability, family problems, new migrants, ageing population and so on. Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)
