Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art

The Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art is the most important museum of international contemporary in Hungary and a government-funded public institution. Following the agreement between the Ludwig Foundation (Aachen) and the Hungarian state, the institution was established in 1991 for the presentation of the artworks donated by the couple of collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig. Since then, the development of the collection and later the exhibition program - not directly linked to the collection - focusses mainly on post-1960s international, regional and Hungarian art.
