Museum Ludwig/reiheM Screening August 25th, Cologne (Köln)

8 08 2011

On Thursday August 25th at 21:00, the film is being screened at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne (Köln) Germany during an event that’s part of the reiheM concert and film series.  Here’s a link to reiheM, and a link to the museum listing for the film.

 Museum Ludwig is devoted to post 1900 works of art — from their website: “Roy Lichtenstein‘s M-Maybe, Andy Warhol‘s Brillo Boxes and George Segal‘s Restaurant Window, all icons of American Pop Art, had all just been completed when in 1969 they arrived as a loan at Wallraf-Richartz-Museum.  The works came from Peter and Irene Ludwig, who had put together the largest Pop Art collection outside of the USA.  The donation of 350 modern artworks by Mr and Mrs Ludwig marked the founding of Museum Ludwig in 1976.  It was to be

the first museum to exhibit contemporary art in Cologne.  Apart from Pop Art, the Ludwigs also made a permanent loan to the new museum of their Russian Avant-Garde collection from 1906 to 1930, as well as several hundred works by Pablo Picasso.”

Of course I’m thrilled to be having the film shown there, and in fact I will be attending — really looking forward to visiting Cologne, and seeing the museum — will definitely be looking at some of the art.

This has all come about through the efforts and enthusiasm of Frank Dommert from A-Musik, and reiheM.  Many thanks to him and to Museum Ludwig for staging this event.  Hope to see you there!
