Af­ter a long pe­ri­od dur­ing which the sub­ject was ta­boo, an in­creas­ing num­ber of mu­se­ums are open­ing up to a trans­par­ent ac­count­ing of coun­ter­feit works, exchang­ing in­sights, and, if ne­ces­sary, writ­ing off works from their col­lec­tions. With a con­cen­trat­ed stu­dio ex­hi­bi­tion, the Mu­se­um Lud­wig is al­so pos­ing ques­tions about au­then­tic­i­ty us­ing the ex­am­ple of the Rus­sian avant-garde. In ad­di­tion to Pop Art and Pi­cas­so, this is one of the fo­cus­es of the mu­se­um’s col­lec­tion, with more than 800 works from the pe­ri­od be­tween 1905 and 1930, in­clud­ing some 100 paint­in­gs. For vari­ous rea­sons, works of ques­tion­able au­thor­ship have cont­in­u­al­ly found their way in­to pri­vate and in­sti­tu­tio­n­al col­lec­tions. The Mu­se­um Lud­wig is al­so af­fect­ed and is cur­rent­ly in­vesti­gat­ing its col­lec­tion with the help of in­ter­na­tio­n­al scho­lars. The ex­hi­bi­tion will pre­sent the ini­tial ?nd­in­gs as well as art-his­tor­i­cal and tech­no­log­i­cal meth­ods for mak­ing ar­tis­tic au­thor­ship or false at­tri­bu­tions rec­og­niz­able, with works by Na­talia Goncharo­va, Kli­ment Red­ko, Niko­lai Suetin, and other artists.
