Dietlinde Behncke founded the gallery ludwig space on January 31, 2023. The gallery - to be understood as a "Munich window" - hosts innovative and pioneering exhibitions and puts the art positions in an unique context with the issues of our time by regularly hosting talks with highly influential guests. The subject of dialogue is also new for Munich in architecture. The ludwig space leaves the traditional "white cube" and is instead a character space. The interior design "centerpiece", a mirror, establishes the (visual) dialogue with the city.
Dietlinde Behncke, an experienced art and communications expert with Munich base and international reach, feels a strong commitment to both artists and collectors, to communicate their perspectives and to connect them - to the art scene and further more to society.
Before the gallery ludwig space was founded, cultural manager Dietlinde Behncke and her communications agency behncke communications had successfully bridged the gap between business and culture in Berlin and Munich for over 20 years. Interested in art, literature, theater and opera since her youth, she has worked at many important houses such as Suhrkamp Verlag, the culture department of the ZDF capital studio in Berlin, the Deutsche Guggenheim Museum and with Roman Soukup (former managing director of documenta X). On the other hand, through her studies at Oxford University and INSEAD Business School, she can draw on extensive alumni networks in broad economic sectors and has further deepened these business contacts and experiences through her professional positions. She is an active member of various national and international friends and support groups for art and culture.
