Betty Leirner – Exhibition "Flower Blast – Female Artists from the Ludwig Collection"

Ludwig Forum fuer Internationale Kunst, Aachen, Germany


In the early 1970s, women began to permeate the previously male dominated terrain of art, breaking artistically with traditional rules and historical stereotypes. Together with the pioneers of feminist art history, they paved the way for a new appreciation of women’s artistic achievements. Flower Blast / Blumen Sprengung, Annette Wehrmann’s eponymous work, represents such a spirit of new beginnings.

1970 was also the year that the Neue Galerie – Sammlung Ludwig, the institution that preceded the Ludwig Forum was founded. Permanently located in Aachen, and holding one of the most important collections of Contemporay Art in the world, collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig founded in Aachen the first public Museum for Contemporary Art in the Federal Republic of Germany. Therefore it is appropriate to celebrate its 50th birthday with a selection of around 100 works by female artists from the Ludwig Forum Collection.
