Within the framework of the “Frankfurter Positionen”, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main is presenting the first institutional solo exhibition of Hassan Khan (b. 1975) to take place in Germany. The artist, musician and writer lives and works in Cairo, Egypt.
Isa Genzken (b. 1948) is one of the most influential women artists of the present. In the spring of 2015, her most recent workgroup will be on view for the first time in Germany at the MMK 1 branch of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst. Since the 1970s the sculptor Genzken has developed an artistic stance that, though making reference to Pop Art and Minimalism, has nonetheless brought forth a thoroughly idiosyncratic and unique visual language.
In 2015, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst serves once again as a key partner to the RAY Fotografieprojekte Frankfurt/RheinMain. Following the successful first edition of the international photography triennial in 2012, RAY 2015 presents outstanding international positions of contemporary photography, thus bringing together the special qualities of the collections and institutions represented in Frankfurt and the region in a unique collaboration.
For the seventh time, the MMK is presenting works by the current graduates of Frankfurt’s art academy, the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule. In their final projects, the artists explore various media; this year the focus is on painting, film and installation.
