Peter und Irene Ludwig Stiftung

Voices

In a wide-ranging project the Ludwig Foundation is currently research­ing the genesis of the Collection, the specific devel­opment of the interests of the two collectors, and the evolution of the Ludwig Foundation itself. Headed by Regina Wyrwoll, the project is compiling an information archive based on oral history sources. The interviews with contem­poraries alone provide an indis­pens­able basis for a history of the Collection and Foundation yet to be written. Their profile is broad, ranging from museum directors, gallery owners, artists and friends through to staff and long-­standing colleagues. In a richly-faceted tableau they help to trace devel­opments in art since the 1950s and thus add a multi-­perspectival approach to the one dimension­ality of many studies.
