MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main is one of the world’s most renowned museums of contemporary art. With its large-scale monographic exhibitions and its outstanding collection comprising over 5,000 works the MMK has been a center of attraction for local and international art lovers since its opening in 1991.
The new annex of the MMK, which opened in autumn 2014, marks a mile stone in the history of the museum: an additional space comprising 2,000 sqm within the newly built skyscraper TaunusTurm, in the heart of Frankfurt’s financial district, has made it possible to present greater parts of the MMK Collection than ever before. With this, the MMK is represented by three exhibition venues in Frankfurt:
The main building in the Domstrasse, the MMK 1, presents the classics of the Collection starting with Modern Art of the 1960s along with temporary exhibitions with leading international artists.
The new annex in the TaunusTurm shows the most recent acquisitions of the Collection alongside new productions.
