MMK 2 at the TaunusTurm
Closing weekend: 10/11 September 2016 at the MMK 2
Three of Europe’s most prestigious museums of modern and contemporary art – the Centre Pompidou, the Tate and the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst – are bringing major works from their collections together to create a temporary European museum.
In honour of the museum’s twenty-fifth anniversary, a new presentation of the collection awaits the visitors with a focus on the acquisitions of the past few years.
Starting in September, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst will present the Turner Prize winner Laure Prouvost (b. 1978) with her first comprehensive solo presentation in Germany.
Willem de Rooij (b. 1969), a professor at the Frankfurt Städelschule art academy since 2006, is one of the most influential artists of his generation. Often bearing reference to works by other artists or artefacts from historical and anthropological collections, his works revolve around questions of representation and meaning.
In recent years, Florian Hecker (b. 1975) has created a unique œuvre that has received international recognition in the form of numerous exhibitions, performances and concerts. In his work, Hecker consistently forms connections between the realms of visual art, music and performance, breaking established boundaries and opening up new forms of expression and possibilities of perception in space and time.
