Under the title HERE AND NOW at Museum Ludwig, in February 2016 a new exhibition series was initiated by Yilmaz Dziewior in which the Museum Ludwig challenges the foundations of its museum work and conventional formats of museum exhibitions. The aim is to experimentally expand the spectrum of possibilities for presenting art in museums and to productively open the institution in various directions.

After the beginning of the series with Heimo Zobernig, the second project under the programmatic title Home Visit is an exhibition that is taking place not in the museum, but in private homes throughout the city. Six international artists and collectives were invited to develop new site-specific works that engage with selected living spaces in which the works will be presented. In close coordination with the participating artists, domestic spaces were chosen that are of particular interest to the artistic intervention either conceptually, architecturally, or due to the residents.

In this experimental exhibition, the participating artists deal with current notions of privacy, intimacy, and hospitality in our digitally networked and nomadic society from their own individual perspectives. Moreover, the exhibition directly examines conventions and new forms of living as well as the possibilities and limits of their representation. On the one hand, private homes are increasingly being shared, professionalized, and exhibited publicly through social media, the sharing economy, and mobile working. On the other hand, many people see a growing need for the home as a place of retreat. But what happens when not only what is private becomes public, but also what is public becomes private?

The exhibition is supported by the HERE AND NOW group of members of the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst am Museum Ludwig e. V. as well as the Storch Foundation.

Curator: Leonie Radine

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue.
