Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen, the Chairwoman of the Foundation's Board of Trustees, pays tribute to a quarter-century of the Ludwig Foundation: "Today, we celebrate an important milestone in our non-profit activities. For over 25 years, we have enjoyed a close partnership with the public institutions around the world which the Ludwigs generously endowed with donations or permanent loans. Irene Ludwig was chairperson of the Foundation until her death in 2010. Her cosmopolitanism and her maxims of promoting mutual understanding through international artistic activities and responding to new challenges remain our guiding principles to this day. We look forward to many more years of successful cooperation with our partners in the spirit of the founders – for art."
To mark this occasion, the sculptor Andreas Schmitten has created a site-specific work at the home of the Foundation, the founders' former private residence in Aachen. The project is not open to the general public. The Foundation is working together with supporting organisations of the museums which are connected with it to make it possible for those who are interested to view the project in the form of organised tours.
