International Relations Department

International Relations Department

The primary goal of International Relations Department is to strengthen and support the international presence of contemporary Hungarian art scene. International Relations Department initiates and maintains exchange and continuous professional collaboration between the actors of the Hungarian and international art communities. The main activities of International Relations Department are:

  • curatorial visitor programmes
  • artist-in-residence programmes
  • organising exhibitions, conferences, lectures and projects in collaboration with international contemporary art institutions
  • professional support of the projects listed here.


Artist-in-residence programmes:

We initiate, organise and implement the participation of Hungarian artists in international artist-in-residence programmes - financed by various competitions. Furthermore we host international artists, providing them with appropriate working conditions and the possibility of presentation e.g. by organising workshops.

Visitor programme:

We invite renowned experts to give lectures either in connection with the exhibitions at the Ludwig Museum or on independent topics within the field of contemporary art. During their stay we provide our guests with the chance to get acquainted with the Hungarian art scene by organising meetings and visits to the most famous art institutions.


In cooperation with international institutions of contemporary art we participate in arranging exhibitions, lectures, conferences, and realise many other public events and projects.
