The exhibition Mapping the Collection takes a new look at two influential decades in the history of US art: the 1960s and 1970s. Through a selection of artworks from the Museum Ludwig’s permanent collection as well as several key loans, the exhibition explores issues of equality, indigenous self-determination, women’s rights, and Black Power. The political and social context of these two decades form the background against which individual artistic response is studied. In turn, the exhibition questions a Western European conception and reception of American art.
This exhibition is the result of the Terra Foundation Research Fellowship in American Art at the Museum Ludwig.
