MMK Frankfurt am Main

I AM A PROBLEM

Staged by Ersan Mondtag

MMK 2

23 September 2017 —
18 February 2018

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.


Carolee Schneemann. Kinetic Painting

MMK 1

31 May 2017 —
24 September 2017

Carolee Schneemann (* 1939), who was awarded the Golden Lion 2017 of the Biennale di Venezia, went down in art history as a pioneer of performance art. Addressing gender roles, sexuality and the use of the body in art, her works had a trailblazing influence on subsequent generations of artists. In this survey, the MMK will present her well-known works and performances side by side with examples rarely or never shown to date, thus drawing attention to new facets of her artistic contribution.


Opening I AM A PROBLEM

22 September, 8 pm at MMK 2
Admission is free

Director and set designer Ersan Mondtag turns the MMK 2 into a stage that carries the visitors off into a gloomy – but nevertheless stimulating – parallel world, that ranges from grotesque self-optimization to manifestations of physical dissolution.
