SHOOT! SHOOT! SHOOT!
Photographs from the 60s and 70s from the Nicola Erni Collection
21.01.2018 bis 27.05.2018
Brigitte Bardot with a blonde mane, Yves Saint-Laurent stark naked and Mick Jagger with a fur hat: icons from the worlds of film, fashion and music photographed by superstars such as Richard Avedon, Bert Stern and Helmut Newton resuscitate in the LUDWIGGALERIE the verve of life of the 1960s and 1970s.
The black and white photographs presented on coloured museum walls radiate with aplomb. Party, politics, fashion, music, art and the cult of the body are pictorially depicted by Warhol's Factory and the associated New York scene.
The Beatles letting off heat with a pillow fight, Twiggy as the new, androgynous supermodel and the stars of Hollywood reflect the important moments in time through impressive portraits.
Over 200 photographs from the Swiss Nicola Erni Collection document a Who's Who of celebrity society. With their adulation of the cult of the person, sensual pleasure and total devotion to the moment the photographs exude a sense of uninterrupted fascination.
Exhibition concept: Photography collection/Stadtmuseum Munich.
In cooperation with the Nicola Erni Collection and Ira Stehmann.
Kunst & Kohle [Art & Coal] – an exhibition project of the RuhrKunstMuseen
GLÜCK AUF! Comics and cartoons from Kumpel Anton to Jamiri and Walter Moers
02.05.2018 bis 09.09.2018
Although the topic of coal is not a focus area of comics and cartoons there are still a wide range of interesting positions. Participating artists have weaved stories all about the "black gold" in completely different ways and methods.
The Ducks in the Ruhr Region hang around during the day whilst Dorgathen's Stahlgolem and Ulf K's Hieronymus B. report about structural transition. Dachma recalls the coal dust in the air and Ulrike Martens lets her coal-caked hummingbird flutter up high. Kreitz and Mrozek guide us didactically into the area of Middle Ages mining whilst Wieser narrates the story of an artist. That coal also plays a role beyond the borders of the Ruhr Region is demonstrated by Walter Moers together with Florian Biege who take us on a trip to the distant empire of Zamonia. Special guests make an appearance in the form of Kumpel Anton drawn by Otto Berenbrock and Opa Hausen by Dirk Trachternach.
