Tuesday, 10 July, 17 pm, Lecture Hall at MMK 1

Isabelle Graw, art historian and professor of art theory at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule, presents her latest book "The Love of Painting. Genealogy Of A Success Medium ". In it, she traces the success story of painting with knowledge and commitment and demonstrates its omnipresence in spite of the increasing digitalization of the arts by means of exemplary artists. Alongside in-depth analyses of the work of artists like Édouard Manet, Jutta Koether, Martin Kippenberger, Jana Euler, and Marcel Broodthaers, the book includes conversations with artists in which Graw’s insights are further discussed and put to the test. The book presentation will be followed by a conversation between the philosopher Prof. Christoph Menke, the paintress Amy Sillman and the author.

The event will be held in English.
Admission is free of charge.

With the works of Cao Fei, Richard Mosse and Paulo Nazareth, the exhibition EXTREME. NOMADS at MMK 1 focuses on different aspects of contemporary forms of nomadic existence and addresses the dissolution of boundaries in politics, economy, society, and culture. The artists from three continents are not only investigating the individual, social and political extremes that are a result of globalisation, but also their own artistic strategies move across and alongside these boundaries.

Aspects of the Documentary in MMK's Photography Collection

Whether on a smartphone, in the newspaper or on a computer – every day we experience our world through a flood of photographs. Many of the artists represented in the MMK Collection have explored media images and reinterpreted them in their works. They reflect on political topics that have been disseminated through images in the press, deconstruct the authenticity of press photographs, or create images for topics that previously defied illustration.

A Dialogue Between the MMK and DekaBank Collections

The MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main and the DekaBank look back over many years of cooperation in the development of the museum’s collection and as founding partners of the MMK 2. On the occasion of its 100th birthday, the DekaBank is making a donation of major works to the MMK from its collection. The gift encompasses four installations, in part quite large in size, by the artists Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Michael Beutler, Tue Greenfort and Martin Kippenberger.
