Job Opportunity: Terra Foundation Collection Research Fellow at Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany

Terra Foundation Collection Research Fellow in American Art in Museum Ludwig, City of Cologne, Germany

The position will become available earliest on May 1st, 2018

Please send your complete and informative application in German including cover letter, CV and certificates with indication of the code number 202/18-09 before 11 April 2018

The Museum Ludwig—a museum of the City of Cologne, Germany—is one of the most important museums of modern and contemporary art in Europe. Collection strengths include pop art, classical Modernism, Russian Avant-garde, the art of Pablo Picasso, and important works of contemporary art and photography by U.S. artists.

Funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne offers a two-year Fellowship for the study/research of Museum Ludwig’s collection of American Art made before 1980. This is a research grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art, based in Chicago and Paris, which supports the study and understanding of American art world wide.

The Fellow will research the Museum’s collection of pre-1980 American art, exploring archives in and outside the museum. The orientation of the research should ideally be focused on issues from postcolonial, gender, and/or queer studies, and the outcomes are to be developed so that they are accessible to the general public. Results of the research will be presented in a blog, which is intended to enhance an ongoing dialogue about post-war American art in Europe. In addition, the Fellow will organize a symposium to provide a forum for international scholarly exchange. Finally, in consultation and collaboration with the museum’s curators, the Fellow will participate in the elaboration of an altered presentation of the permanent collection on the basis of archival material and research results.

The Fellow will be considered a professional member of the museum’s curatorial staff with ready access to curators, conservators, and other museum departments.
