"Zuhause" is an exhibition which was curated by fifteen young people of Frankfurt am Main. The exhibition was developed in cooperation with one school class of the Ludwig-Börne Schule.
In November 2011, photo artist Tobias Zielony (born 1973, Wuppertal) will be presenting his new "Manitoba" cycle in its entirety for the first time: in the context of a solo show at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main’s Zollamt satellite space. In Winnipeg, the capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba, Zielony has created works that record the life of the youths who are members of a "gang" of First Nations and the (urban) world in which they live.
Owing to its size and diversity, the presentation of this collection in its entirety has not been possible to date. Already at the time of its opening, the holdings comprised more works than could be displayed on the floor space offered by the museum building, a Hans Hollein design. In the anniversary year 2011, however, we are making the hitherto impossible possible.
The exhibition will present young artists who depict absence and ephemerality in their art. Their works direct the viewer’s gaze to blank spaces and visualize the non-existent, impalpable and invisible.
