Between September 2012 and May 2013, the artist Danica Dakić (b. 1962) is working with twentythree grant recipients of the Crespo Foundation to develop the work "Safe Frame", a video and sound installation exploring questions of identity and history, safety and freedom.
Paul Almásy's work Louvre of 1942 from the MMK collection forms the point of departure. Almásy's photo shows a museum gallery with empty picture frames on the walls. In an open artistic process, the project participants are critically examining the museum institution and collection. Within this framework, the artworks become the subject while also providing scope for the development of various perspectives and voices. The grant recipients thus experience the emergence of an artwork from its conception to its exhibition. Their close cooperation with the artist and the MMK art mediation department moreover provides them a range of opportunities to explore the themes of exhibition and art mediation in depth.
"Safe Frame" is a cooperation project being carried out by Danica Dakić, the photographer Egbert Trogemann, and the SABA grant recipients of the Crespo Foundation.
