Artists of the MMK Collection
Today, the MMK Collection consists of more than 4,500 artworks by some 440 artists, and offers a representative cross-section of the national and international art scenes. The works cover all the genres of modern and contemporary art, ranging from painting, sculpture, video and photography to light, sound and performance art.
Alongside the international stars, the MMK has always been in close contact with the Frankfurt art scene, which is represented in the MMK Collection by works by Thomas Bayrle, Charlotte Posenenske, Peter Roehr, Udo Koch, and Marco Lehanka, not least because MMK has always fostered close links to the renowned Städel Academy. Often, “young art” has been acquired that has since turned out to be trailblazing. From the very beginning, MMK has attached great importance to working closely with individual artists. And this outstanding partnership has often enabled us to acquire larger groups of works, in part supplemented by generous gifts from the artists.
