The Ge­sellschaft für Mod­erne Kunst am Mu­se­um Lud­wig purchased the as­sem­blage The Di­vine Face from 1971 to­gether with the Mu­se­um Lud­wig for the mu­se­um’s col­lec­tion as part of the prize award­ed to Be­tye Saar. The work will be pre­sent­ed in the mu­se­um’s col­lec­tion from June 1 to Septem­ber 12, 2021 along with two etch­ings re­cent­ly ac­quired through the “Per­len­such­er am Mu­se­um Lud­wig” ini­tia­tive as well as a col­lage and an artist’s book. The film Be­tye Saar: Tak­ing Care of Busi­ness, which was pro­duced by the Los An­ge­les Coun­ty Mu­se­um of Art (LAC­MA) for an ex­hi­bi­tion there in 2019/2020, will al­so be shown as part of the pre­sen­ta­tion. This recog­ni­tion of the artist, who was born in Los An­ge­les in 1926 and is still lit­tle known in Ger­many, is long over­due, the ju­ry con­sist­ing of Chris­tophe Cher­ix, Robert Leh­man Foun­da­tion chief cu­ra­tor of draw­ings and prints at the Mu­se­um of Mod­ern Art (Mo­MA) in New York; Yil­maz Dziewior, di­rec­tor of the Mu­se­um Lud­wig; and the board mem­bers of the as­so­ci­a­tion de­cid­ed. For more than fif­ty years, Be­tye Saar has cre­at­ed as­sem­blages from a wide va­ri­e­ty of found ob­jects, which she com­bines with draw­ing, prints, paint­ing, and pho­tog­ra­phy.
