Rosemarie Trockel, Justine/Juliette, 1988
Museum MMK
Aug 17 – Feb 16, 2020
MMK Frankfurt
Frankfurt, Germany

A museum of the present must always be a different one. In a time of constant change and the attending sense of powerlessness, the exhibition Museum seeks to open up and occupy new spaces. Rather than critically questioning the institution, the focus is on exploring its possibilities.

With works from the collection, new productions and loans, the exhibition Museum strives to unfurl the current liberties of art and thus of the present museum. Gestures of configuration, transformation and transgression here aid in the endeavor to conceive of – and make perceivable – the Other.

Artists: Michael Asher, Jo Baer, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Marcel Broodthaers, A.K. Burns, Tony Cokes, Tony Conrad, Tracey Emin, Jana Euler, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fischli/Weiss, Parastou Forouhar, Ryan Gander, Gilbert & George, Anne Imhof, On Kawara, Martin Kippenberger, Oliver Laric, Claude Lelouch, Li Liao, Bruce Nauman, Olaf Nicolai, Roman Opalka, Blinky Palermo, Laurie Parsons, Adrian Piper, Pamela Rosenkranz, Cameron Rowland, Robert Ryman, Victoria Santa Cruz, Sturtevant, Rosemarie Trockel, Gavin Turk, Cy Twombly, and Jeff Wall.

    Microscope Gallery
    New York, USA

    Microscope is very pleased to present To Deceive the Eye, the second solo exhibition at the gallery of works by artist Ina Archer. For To Deceive the Eye – the English translation of the French term “trompe-l’oeil” – Archer draws attention to the representation of African Americans and “the other” in cinema, the media, and the wider culture, from the mid-1800s until present day, highlighting the ways in which visual advancements have often been used to perpetuate stereotypes and racist tropes.

  • Jorma Mueller: Restoration to a Better Past
    Publication
    Entkunstung
    International

    Restoration to a Better Past is a photography book by Jorma Mueller. In Jorma Mueller’s photography there is margin for a biographical hypothesis and glimpses of something that has been lost. A vision of the present as ebb and flow is almost inevitable in the experience of his work. Subjectivity is melancholic, and that melancholy contains the evocation that restores the legacy for which others risked their fate. (more…)
