We are not only one of the five museums in Germany that the collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig initiated and support by generous donations, permanent loans and project funds, but also, since our opening in December 1992, we define ourselves through an active dialogue in modern art with our neighbouring country, France. In addition, we undertake international exhibition projects in Koblenz.
Based on resolutions of the founding committee, which included Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Peter Ludwig and a previous mayor of Koblenz , the art collection and the exhibition policies of the museum develop an important exchange with our neighbouring country, with France . The almost 300-year old connection of Koblenz with France , in the time of the protectorate as well as during the occupation, form a historical background that positions the museum with current starting points and questions.
The orientation of the museum to French art of the 20 th century, particularly to developments after 1945 up to the present time, is unique in Germany. The Ludwig collection and the ever-changing exhibitions stimulate a fruitful dialogue, creating and expanding relationships and subject-matter.
For us it is important to extend this uniqueness. We are a young, vital museum with the goal of presenting the art of our neighbouring country. We want to present current developments as well as the continuity and classics of the 20 th century (e.g. AndrÃ© Masson 1997; Jean LurÃ§at 2001). But we don't look only towards France, we also look to the international art scene. This often leads to reciprocal influences and artistic stimulations as, for example, in the comprehensive exhibition "Deutschland Frankreich. Dialoge der Kunst im XX. Jahrhundert". To these are added important monographic exhibitions, which either build on our collection - such as "Arman - works on paper" (2000); "Ben Vautier - Is nothingness important?" (2002); "Bernar Venet - Works from the 60's up to the 90's" (2002), â€“ or present issues of social relevance, such as "Bettina Rheims & Serge Bramly, I.N.R.I." (2000), "Lucinda Devlin: Omega Suites", (2002), or "Cultural Identity? - Beni Cohen-Or, Hegameh Mahvi, Masumi Hayashi, Qi Yang" (2002).

takes on the meaning in the Ludwig Museum of presenting current art as a place of marvel and learning to all interested persons, both to young people and to those who remain young at heart.
In a historical building, the Deutschherrenhaus am Deutschen Eck, upon a site steeped in history, highly diverse groups are brought closer to contemporary art as well as to first-rate temporary exhibitions in a diversified and creative manner.
The Pedagogical Section of the museum, under the direction of Ute Hofmann-Gill, offers a program that is tailored to the various temporary exhibitions and which is oriented, not just towards children and young people, but also towards adults.
An essential aspect of the pedagogical activity in the Ludwig Museum consists, not only in conveying theoretical knowledge about art and artists, but also in providing an impulse for a personal, creative encounter with art. Accordingly, the program includes rallies, workshops, courses in design, discussion sessions and, of course, traditional guided tours through the exhibitions. Included as well are mutual interminglings between art and music (with expert musical pedagogues), between dance and art, as well as between art and literature.
The school-specific offerings are oriented towards the current plan of instruction for the subject "Visual Arts."
Groups upon request and prior notice, max. 25 people

Ã¢â‚¬â€œ for Kindergartens, Schools and Day-Nurseries
The Pedagogical Section of the museum develops, in response to each current exhibition in the Ludwig Museum , an attractive, age-relevant series of offerings for kindergartens, school classes, day-nursery groups or other circles of children. The events are customarily divided into two parts. The children first become familiar with selected aspects of the institution and the collection by wandering through the museum with the help of seaching-games or rallies. Afterwards, the young visitors to the museum have the opportunity of responding creatively to that which they have seen and experienced in terms of a concrete task with which they are presented.
Oriented towards the current plan of instruction for the subject "Visual Arts" and in close collaboration with the professionals who tend to the children, the contents and schedules (also outside of the regular opening times) are brought into accordance with the needs of each individual group.
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Young People (outside school)
The Pedagogical Section of the museum regularly offers workshops and activities for children and young people who are enthused about art and who enjoy painting, modeling and taking photos. In vacation-workshops or in seasonally-defined activities such as those during Advent, young people have the opportunity, under qualified supervision and along with their peers, of experiencing art and discovering their own artistic capabilities.
The Wednesday Painting Workshop takes place regularly on Wednesdays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The participation fee is 4.50 Euros and includes materials. Supervision: Ute Hofmann-Gill.
Furthermore there is the possibility of celebrating a child's birthday in the museum. The price is 50.00 Euros for groups up to ten children and includes supervision and material.
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ for Students (Seminars)
As part of her instructional responsibilities at the UniversitÃƒÂ¤t Koblenz-Landau, Department of Visual Arts, Dr. Beate Reifenscheid conducts seminars in art history at the Ludwig Museum .
Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.
Artwork of the Month
Each Sunday at 3:00 p.m. and each Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. there are guided tours that are open to the public and are free of charge, all with the theme "The Artwork of the Month."
Art Meeting - 50
On the first Thursday of the month from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Art enthusiasts get together here and enjoy a lively exchange, under the competent moderation of Rolf Ohly and Dr. CÃƒÂ©cile Michaud, about the contents of the current exhibition or concerning selected works from the collection.
