Fotografie Total: in the MMK 11 August 2012

Section: photography

Categories: museum

A nice exhibition in the Frankfurt MMK (Museum der Modernen Kunst/Museum of Modern Art), though the dramatic “total” in its title should be seen as an attempt to give a general impression of the museum’s photography collection.

An explanatory paragraph from the museum’s web site:

In displays changing regularly over a period of seven months, the MMK will show new thematic ensembles with a focus on important conceptual strategies as well as the architectural photography in its holdings. This presentation mode will permit the museum to place several hundred works on view in suspenseful and unexpected constellations, and thus to unfold an impressive panorama of artistic photography.
