The instition's press release follows: 

The gal­leries of the Mu­se­um Lud­wig of­fer space to dis­play around one-third of the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion. To en­sure that the broad­est pos­si­ble spec­trum of the hold­ings is on view, the col­lec­tion re­mains in cont­in­u­ous flux within the mu­se­um.

At reg­u­lar in­ter­vals the works need to un­der­go conser­va­tio­n­al ex­am­i­na­tion in or­der to ad­e­qu­ate­ly pre­serve them. For this rea­son none of the ob­jects can be guar­an­teed a per­ma­nent, unchang­ing place within the mu­se­um. Graph­ics and pho­to­graph­ic works in par­tic­u­lar, due to their sen­si­tiv­i­ty to light, can­not be ex­hibit­ed for ex­tend­ed pe­ri­ods of time.

Just as the Mu­se­um Lud­wig loans art­works from in­ter­na­tio­n­al ex­hi­bi­tion in­sti­tu­tions for its spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tions, our col­lec­tion al­so cont­in­u­al­ly re­ceives re­quests to loan out in­di­vi­d­u­al works.

Thank you for your un­der­s­tand­ing, that we can­not dis­play the en­tire­ty of our col­lec­tion at all times.
