The Ludwig Foundation in Cuba. Programs and challenges
In January 1995 through the auspices of Peter and Irene Ludwig, the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba was publicly inaugurated as one of the few NGOs approved to operate locally. The presentation aims to illustrate some of its programs and events, as well as how they integrate within the institutional system and the community of artists in the island.
Wilfredo Benítez Muñoz (Havana, 1962). Executive Director of the Ludwig Foundation of Cuba. He conceived and structured the organization together with Helmo Hernández, its President to date. He manages programs and projects of the institution in the fields of visual and performing arts, independent cinema and cultural studies, as well as academic exchange programs. The management issues of the Foundation (legal, administration, labor and accounting) are directly under his supervision. He has an important role in the Foundation’s foreign affairs and public relations policies. He has given courses and conferences in cultural and academic centers in Cuba, Europe and North America.
