SCHIRN
Kunsthalle Frank­furt

The SCHIRN Kunsthalle Frank­furt is one of most impor­tant exhi­bi­tion venues in Europe. Since opening in 1986, it has presented more than 200 exhi­bi­tions on around 2,000 m² of floor space and can boast a total of more than 8 million visi­tors. The SCHIRN focuses on art-histor­ical and historico-cultural themes, discourses, and trends from a contem­po­rary perspec­tive. Its range of offers is multi­fac­eted, inter­na­tional, and progres­sive; it attempts to open up new points of view and to break open tradi­tional patterns of recep­tion. The exhi­bi­tions are devoted in equal measure to contem­po­rary stances in art and art of the modern era.

Each SCHIRN exhi­bi­tion is accom­pa­nied by a publi­ca­tion. As part of the exhi­bi­tion project, the catalog is its contin­u­a­tion in printed form and enables you to continue to engage with the art and issues addressed in the exhi­bi­tion well after it has actu­ally finished. The concept and specific content of each publi­ca­tion is devised parallel to devel­oping the exhi­bi­tion. Selected authors, and they tend to be experts, artists or jour­nal­ists, explore the respec­tive topic in the form of essays, shed light on it from different angles, and in this way supple­ment the exhi­bi­tion project by empha­sizing addi­tional inter­esting aspects of the subject.

    Salvation is a previously-unpublished artist book by Jimmy DeSana that he conceptualized shortly before his death in 1990.

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
