Art as a Voyage of Discovery

Being passionate about art means discovering it time and time again anew. Members of the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst can look forward to a wide-ranging program: from regular guided tours of current exhibitions in the Museum Ludwig conducted by the responsible curators to studio visits, gallery tours, previews and lectures, as well as day trips to special art destinations and specially designed trips to selected art venues.

Detailed content-related information on the individual program highlights can be found on our ‘Members Only’ page.
