Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) - Museum of Modern Art Frankfurt
The MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst opened in 1991. Today, it is one of the leading museums in Europe. Built by the Viennese architect Hans Hollein, the MMK is one of the most spectacular museum buildings in the postmodern period. A visit to the MMK constitues an essential part of the cultural life in Frankfurt.
The MMK's collection comprises over 4,500 works of European and American art from the 1960s to cutting-edge positions in international contemporary art. Major works by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Katharina Fritsch and numerous other artists are part of this collection.
With regular temporary exhibitions that take up themes from the collection, the MMK seeks to redefine its position as a museum and sees itself as a place of constantly changing perspectives.
The MMK's core mission is to build a collection of contemporary art and educate the public about its holdings. The MMK offers a varied art education programme. Adults, students, families, children, young people or groups can take part in guided tours, workshops, regular lectures, artist talks and many other events and activities.
Besides the main building (MMK 1), the museum exhibits at two further locations. MMK 3 is across the street from the main building, and MMK 2 was just opened in fall 2014 in the newly erected high rise TaunusTurm in the heart of the financial district. With the new MMK annex, a long-cherished wish for more space in which to showcase the museum collection more comprehensively has finally come true.
