PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Hair! Hair in Art

Masterpieces from the Ludwig Collection from antiquity to the present
For thousands of years, hair has fascinated people of all cultures – be it as the site of the soul, which symbolises the life force of man, or as the central bearer of erotic messages. It plays a special role in all religions across the world. Fecundity or loss of power is reflected in luxuriant or clipped/shaved hair; covered or loosely worn hair signalises status or belonging to a certain gender or group.  
Never before in an exhibition has hair been explored from an artistic viewpoint across all types and time, until now. It is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue, topped off with well-grounded texts that highlight the subject in a fascinating way.
