In the anniversary year 2011, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst will present its collection in an unprecedented overview exhibition “MMK 1991 – 2011 20 Years of presence”, where for the first time in its history, the multiplication of the MMK’s exhibition space will allow to spread out works by nearly all of the artists represented in the collection until June 19th – September 10th.
In addition to the staging of major works of outstanding significance by Nam June Paik, Christian Boltanski, Ai Wei Wei/Serge Spitzer or Franz Erhard Walther in new constellations and spaces at the MainTor-Areal, works from the MMK holdings never before shown to the public, for example by Michel Majerus, Ceal Floyer or Holger Bunk, will be introduced.
In the past two decades, many of the pieces on display here have been developed for specific spaces within the building by artists represented in the collection. No other museum in the world possesses such a large number of site-specific works.
