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.
The exhibition of works by the graduates of the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule is taking place at the MMK 3 for the eighth time.
The artist Fiona Tan is among the outstanding artists of the present. The survey “Geography of Time” focuses on major works from her film oeuvre – for example the double projection “Rise and Fall” – as well as on the latest developments in her work, which increasingly takes the form of installation environments.
Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc (b. in 1977, lives and works in Rome) is the recipient of the 17th Baloise Art Prize. To develop his multifaceted œuvre of film, photography, drawings and sculpture, the artist takes as his point of departure extensive research on artefacts of colonial and post-colonial history. They serve him as representatives of complex global interrelations and the impact of the latter on the construction of cultural identity.
