MMK to Focus on Non-European Contemporary Art

In the coming years, non-European contemporary art will figure more and more prominently in the collection and exhibition programme of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main.

As is the case with the majority of contemporary art museums in Germany, the MMK’s chief focus has hitherto been directed towards the European and North American avant-gardes of 1945 to the present. In the future, it will be expanded increasingly to include non-European concepts.

The comprehensive retrospective on the Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica presently on view (until January 2014) will be followed this coming spring by the major exhibition project “The Divine Comedy: Heaven, Hell, Purgatory from the Perspective of Contemporary African Artists”, which will present works by fifty-seven contemporary artists from twenty African countries on all three floors of the MMK. In the second half of 2014, the museum will dedicate solo exhibitions to the Indian artists Dayanita Singh and Subodh Gupta.
