The Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (LFC) is a non-governmental, non-profit institution located in Havana, Cuba, created with the mission of protecting and promoting Cuban artists in Cuba and internationally. LFC continues to evolve, redefining its principles, goals and work focus depending on the needs and challenges faced by Cubans in a rapidly changing world.
Today, LFC puts a strong emphasis on examining the balance between the public and private sector and aims to open new roads and grant visibility to alternative forms of artistic expression that may be overlooked by more established institutions. From architecture to mobile app development and theatrical readings to graphic design, the Foundation works to educate, promote, and protect the work of Cuba’s emerging artists.
LFC was founded in 1995 by Peter and Irene Ludwig, world-renowned private European collectors and supported yearly by the Peter and Irene Ludwig Foundation located in Aachen, Germany.
