Selfie hype, veggie boom, plastic surgery, fitness mania – What’s our problem? In times of grotesque self-optimization and the ubiquitous pressure to achieve, the exhibition I AM A PROBLEM invites you on a journey through the ups and downs of human existence. Presented by theatre director and set designer Ersan Mondtag, the MMK 2 becomes sombre but nevertheless tantalizing parallel realm where works from the MMK collection become protagonists of a narrative and engage in dialogue.
Featuring altogether thirty-eight artists, this year’s presentation allows in-depth insights into the multifaceted work of the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule – graduates. With the MMK 3 as its primary venue, the show is also staging works in rooms of the museum’s main building, the MMK 1, for the first time.
