For the exhibition project Monument to My Paper Body, New York-based Ulrike Müller has conceived a site-specific mural on the two facing, fourteen-meter-high walls in the Ludwig Forum Aachen. This intervention is accompanied by collages, drawings, enamel paintings, monotypes, and textiles by the artist, which are presented in dialog with selected works from the collections at the Ludwig Forum Aachen.
The exhibition picks up on the Double Wall series (2004-2008) initiated by Harald Kunde, in which artists were invited to artistically activate the two monumental walls of the museum on a rotating basis. Ulrike Müller’s presentation marks the return of the series, in an expanded form, as a fixture in the museum’s exhibition program.
Monument to My Paper Body will be accompanied by a program of events and the production of a publication.
Welcome: Heinrich Brötz, Councillor for Cultural Affairs, City of Aachen and Eva Birkenstock, Curator of the Exhibition, Director, Ludwig Forum Aachen
