Fundación Ludwig de Cuba
The Ludwig Foundation of Cuba (LFC), a non-governmental, autonomous, non-profit institution, was officially created in January 1995 with the purpose of promoting and protecting the work of young Cuban artists. Its principles and strategies have been increasingly refocused in response to emerging needs in the Cuban cultural environment. From a cross-disciplinary outlook including the use of new technologies, the approach to contemporary culture occurs through different types of knowledge, which favors a complex treatment of the multiple subjects that interact in today’s Cuban society. LFC’s international projects are based on programs for Cubans and foreigners with the goal of establishing dialogues and long term exchange projects with important institutions and personalities.
