In displays changing regularly over a period of seven months, the MMK will show new thematic ensembles with a focus on important conceptual strategies as well as the architectural photography in its holdings. This presentation mode will permit the museum to place several hundred works on view in suspenseful and unexpected constellations, and thus to unfold an impressive panorama of artistic photography.

With more than 2,600 works, the MMK has in its possession a contemporary photography collection of international character and worldwide significance. It encompasses chief works by many outstanding artists who have explored the photographic medium over the past five decades and contributed decisively to shaping the development of artistic photography. They include such artists as Jeff Wall, Thomas Ruff, Wolfgang Tillmans and Thomas Demand, as well as important representatives of artistic photojournalism such as Paul Almasy, Barbara Klemm and Anja Niedringhaus.
