Archive of Contemporary Art

The Plattform Aachen is a research project of the Ludwig Forum for International Art, Aachen. It documents the pioneering artistic activities originating in Aachen since the 1960s. An ‘active archive’, the project is devoted to collecting, networking, and presenting those important impulses for art history emanating from Aachen which, from our contemporary perspective, deserve new consideration. The Plattform constructs an archive of photos, autographs, newspaper articles, and other archival documents about events and actors in the artistic field from 1960 through to the present day.

The archive provides access to important contemporary historical documents for research purposes. Researchers and students are invited to use the archive and press ahead with interpreting the sources.
