MARTIN GROSS at LUDWIG FORUM

Group-Show: LE SOUFFLEUR – SCHÜRMANN TRIFFT LUDWIG

Where Peter and Irene Ludwig say “Jeff Koons”, Gaby and Wilhelm Schürmann answer “Mike Kelley” or “Christopher Williams”. The major currents in art followed by the Ludwigs were counteracted by the Schürmanns who were drawn to context oriented positions informed by Institutional Critique and political art.

In “Le Souffleur” these two different attitudes walk a path together: Wilhelm Schürmann was invited to curate an exhibition with the Ludwig collection in mind. The result is an open and agile conception of art spaces in which works from both collections meet on level footing, an arrangement full of subtleties and interactive comments.
