The LUDWIG FORUM AACHEN is a multi-genre house for international contemporary art. Its basis is the art collection of Peter and Irene Ludwig that comprises key works of American Pop Art, Photo Realism and European art from the beginning 1960s to the present. This is the starting point for an attractive exhibition program. Art education offers many activities and guided tours for all ages and types of groups, available in Dutch, French and English.

When the lead figures of the FLUXUS-movement, such as Joseph Beuys, Wolf Vostell and Robert Filliou, took the stage at the Audimax of the Technical University, the performative avant-garde art arrived in Aachen with a bang. The initiator of the provocative action was the cultural speaker of the student council – Valdis Abolinš (1939-1984). More info here.
1968 – there is hardly any other year of the 20th century of such symbolic and iconic status, so full of myths, associations, prejudices and emotions. The 1960s were not only the most innovative decade in art but many social developments were initiated during this decade as well, from which we still profit today. More info here.
Between archive images and interviews, a slide show creates a narrative of the 1968 movement at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. More info here.
