DOUBLE WALL DOUBLE TALK – Finissage, short performance and Dialogue with Dan Perjovschi and Annette Lagler, welcome Eva Birkenstock

For the fourth edition of the Double Wall Projects exhibition series initiated in 2004 by then-director Harald Kunde, Romanian-based artist Dan Perjovschi staged a pictographic reference system of pointed artistic commentaries on topics such as globalization, capitalism, politics, and contemporary art on the 9-meter-wide and 14-meter-high walls of the light tower of Ludwig Forum Aachen. As part of his solo exhibition in 2021, he expanded his temporary wall piece, in accordance to the title of the work, Recession (2008/2021), with chalk drawings relating to global recessions during the Corona pandemic, Trump presidency, and other events of the time. After having inspired numerous visitors during the past 15 years, Dan Perjovschi returns to Aachen (in yet another period of recession) on Friday, November 3, 2023, at 5 p.m. for a final intervention during the finissage of the project: a short performance and a dialogue with Annette Lagler (former Deputy Director, Ludwig Forum Aachen).

Between 2004 and 2008, the Double Wall Projects series regularly activated the two fourteen-meter-high walls facing each other in the Ludwig Forum Aachen as artistic intervention surfaces. The artists Margret Eicher, Barbara Kruger, Henrik Schrat, and most recently Dan Perjovschi were invited to use the double walls in the building’s light tower as site-specific exhibition spaces on an annually rotating basis. Starting in December, the Double Wall Projects series will be revived to, again, become a permanent part of the exhibition program at the Ludwig Forum Aachen. For the fifth edition of the series, New York-based artist Ulrike Müller has been invited to conceive a site-specific work. Her exhibition Monument to My Paper Body opens at the Ludwig Forum Aachen on December 8, at 7 pm.
