Fashion and Photography in the 90s

September 25, 2010 - January 9, 2011

The MMK is casting a glance at the decade of fashion photography: the 90s. The 1990s were a decade of individualism and self-defined style. In fashion and photography the focus was on finding personal forms and visual idioms to express that new feeling for life. For the very first time, a museum of contemporary art will be showing on a wide scale and in the context of art history just how radical and innovative the avant-garde thrust of the 1990s designers, artists and photographers was.

MMK Zollamt

September 4 - Oktober 24, 2010

The french artist Cyprien Gaillard (born 1980) will be on show at the MMK Zollamt in autumn 2010. n close proximity to the MMK Zollamt, the complex which housed the former Technisches Rathaus, and which was built between 1972 and 1974, is currently being demolished. Development, destruction, demolition and preservation are the subjects of Cyprien Gaillard's studies. As such the demolition of the building next to the MMK Zollamt will in fact form part of the exhibition, as the high ribbon window on the side of the hall opens out onto the demolition work.

Florian Hecker

May 8 – August 22, 2010

”Event, Stream, Object“ is a sound installation by German artist Florian Hecker (born in 1975, he currently lives in Vienna), produced by MMK with funds from the MMK’s partners, that has now been acquired for the museum's collection. Presented in the current exhibition ”Radical Conceptual“ (February 19 – August 22, 2010), the work consists of a loudspeaker system suspended from the ceiling used to convey a computer-generated, eight-channel sound composition. Each individual loudspeaker plays a sequence of sounds allocated to it and, in itself complex, become a part of the acoustic whole with its differing frequencies and volumes.

Conceptual art on paper from the MMK Collection


March 27 – August 22, 2010

From March 28 until August 22, 2010 MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt/Main is showing conceptual art on paper from its abundant collection of graphic art for the first time. Conceptual art has been a key component of many artists’ visual outlook and activity since the 1960s. Above all, minimalist and concept art have developed new strategies, at whose starting and end points drawing often carries the artistic ideas. These can be articulated in pure concepts, or in graphs, designs or accompanying draft sketches. Here, drawing, writing and image frequently forge an independent aesthetic connection.
