„Wir haben Euch fünf Videos rausgesucht, in denen sehr intensive Botschaften und Geschichten drinstecken. Es ist Kunst, die unser Leben, euer Leben gut beschreibt. Man muss sich nur damit befassen.“ Die Klasse 10c der Georg-Büchner-Schule (gbs_ffm_486) hat im Schuljahr 2021/22 begleitet von der Lehrerin Rebecca Riegel und Vermittler*innen des MUSEUM MMK FÜR MODERNE KUNST das Projekt „Videokunstschule“ durchgeführt. Zum ersten Mal haben Schüler*innen Videoarbeiten aus unserer Sammlung ausgewählt und präsentieren diese in der Ausstellung „4 UR LIFE“ in ihrer Schule. Die fünf ausgewählten Werke von Sammy Baloji, Éric Baudelaire, Pierre Bismuth, Fischli/Weiss und Želimir Žilnik setzen sich mit menschlichem Zusammenleben, Sprache, Rassismus, Ungerechtigkeit, Ausbeutung und Ideen für ein gutes Miteinander auseinander und werden an fünf verschiedenen Orten im Schulgebäude gezeigt. Am kommenden Samstag, 2.Juli, ist die Ausstellung im Rahmen des Schulfestes von 12-17 Uhr öffentlich zugänglich! Kuratiert wurde die Ausstellung von Arman, Azad, Denis, Enis, Ezgi, Houssam, Ilayda, Jassin, Jamal, Jonas, Lina, Malik, Marie, Mario, Mateo, Milena, Navisha, Nora, Viktor, Yabsira, Rahel, Rayan und Sara #mmk #mmksammlung #mmkcollection #georgbüchnerschule #mmkkunstvermittlung #EricBaudelaire #UnFilmDramatique #SammyBaloji #PierreBismuth #FischliWeiss #ZelimirZilnik [Bildbeschreibung: 1 Man sieht die Silhouetten von zwei Kindern, die sich vor einer Video Projektion bewegen.

“A cave-like, concrete-smeared tubular structure stands in the center of the room. It appears simultaneously filigree and robust, organic and industrial. Hollow spheres with large openings hang from the ceiling, like nests, like screaming mouths. On one wall are poems in several languages, written in concrete, by South Korean poet Kim Eon Hee, who is known for explicit, drastic language in which she repeatedly creates images of excrement and bodies. The arrangement of the words, however, is such that one reads fragments […] All of this—the installation, the words—seems raw, almost brutal. But that‘s just the beginning. The title of the exhibition, which is part of the „Pontopreis MMK 2022“ awarded to Mire Lee, is „Look, I‘m a fountain of filth raving mad with love.“ Born in 1988, the South Korean artist Lee is thus concerned with bodies, filth, love. About connections between industry and body, about sensuality within crude structures.“ writes Sandra Danicke (danickesandra) about Mire Lee in Frankfurter Rundschau. Stop by at ZOLLAMT MMK to look at Lee‘s work “Look, I’m a fountain of filth raving mad with love” on your own or join us for an English Guided Tour every Saturday at 11am!

Um das Readymade „Fountain“ (Fontäne), zweifellos eines der einflussreichsten Werke des 20. Jahrhunderts, in Form zu bringen, hatte Marcel Duchamp ein Urinal um 90 Grad auf seinen flachen Rücken gedreht und mit der Signatur „R. Mutt“ versehen. Gedacht war diese Arbeit 1917 für die erste Ausstellung der ein Jahr zuvor gegründeten Society of Independent Artists in New York, deren Mitgründer Duchamp war. Entgegen des Ausstellungsmottos „No Jury – No Prizes – No Commercial Tricks“ lehnten die Organisator*innen das Urinal jedoch ab. Das Original ging verloren, wahrscheinlich auch wegen Duchamps Enttäuschung über die Ablehnung. Für die Kunstgeschichte war das jedoch kein allzu großer Verlust, da Duchamp immer wieder Kopien in verschiedenen Größen anfertigte oder anfertigen ließ. Was macht ein Original also zum Original? Die Einmaligkeit? Die Signatur? Marcel Duchamp hinterfragte diese Kategorien und fand spielerische Lösungen, die auch heute noch für Erstaunen sorgen können. Ein Workshop zum Thema „Wer hat‘s signiert?“ findet diesen Samstag, 25.Juni, um 11:30 im MUSEUM MMK statt und beschäftigt sich mit genau diesen Fragestellungen. Für eine spontane Teilnahme melden Sie sich bitte an der Museumskasse! Der Workshop ist für Familien und Kinder von 8 Jahre kostenlos. Der Eintritt in alle Ausstellungen des MMK ist am Satourday frei! Besucht auch „Mire Lee“ im Zollamt MMK und „Stéphane Mandelbaum“ im TOWER MMK! #mmk #mmkfrankfurt #museummmk #marcelduchamp #satourday [Bildbeschreibung: Auf einem nicht genau definierbaren weißen keramischen Gegenstand steht handschriftlich in dicker schwarzer Farbe „R.MUTT 1917“.] ___ Marcel Duchamp, Fountain, 1917/1964 (Detail), The National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto, © Association Marcel Duchamp / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2022, Foto: Axel Schneider Dieses Werk ist Teil der Ausstellung „Marcel Duchamp“ im MUSEUM MMK (02.04.—03.10.22)

André Breton, who had returned to Paris from New York, organized the exhibition “Exposition Internationale du Surréalisme“ in the French capital in 1947 in a bid to reestablish Surrealism as a major intellectual and cultural force to be reckoned with— and he invited Duchamp to be his partner and come up with a concept for the event. The exhibition prompted Duchamp to launch an investigative series on partial objects of the sexes that would continue through to the 1960s. He had designed and produced the exhibition catalogue, including a limited edition. Duchamp and Enrico Donati had bought foam rubber breasts for the purpose, affixed them to the front cover, and framed them with irregularly shaped pieces of velvet. Donati later recalled that they had painted all the nipples themselves. The words “prière de toucher” on the reverse side of the book—meaning “please touch”—positively invited contact with the partial object, which certainly created something of a stir. Quite apart from the numerous reactions to the rubber breasts on the catalogue cover, sculptural bosoms can be seen as the starting point for at least four works by Duchamp. #mmk #mmkfrankfurt #museummmk #marcelduchamp [image description: An industrially manufactured typewriter cover of the American brand Underwood hangs in the air above a stand.

After completing military service in October 1906, Marcel Duchamp did not return to the art school ”Académie Julian” in Paris. Instead, he preferred to play billiards with Juan Gris in Montmartre. During this period, Duchamp viewed himself as a flaneur—a distanced observer who was obliged to work on his humor constantly. At the time, it was possible to earn a great deal of money through humorous illustrations. Even the great poet Stéphane Mallarmé made his living chiefly from amusing pieces for fashion magazines—and not from his verse that is still regarded as revolutionary today. The 1907 drawing “Femme Cocher” (Woman Hack-Driver) is a good example of Duchamp’s approach to reality in the years when he worked as an illustrator. The work shows a carriage without its driver in front of a grand hotel. This was Duchamp reacting to the introduction of female hack-drivers in Paris, but the absence of the driver in the drawing leaves open the suggestion that she might have disappeared into the hotel with her passenger. In the spring of 1907, Duchamp succeeded in presenting “Femme Cocher” and four more drawings at the first Salon des humoristes, which was being staged by a large magazine at the Palais de Glace, a popular ice rink in Paris. Thanks to everyday scenes such as the drawings “Au Bar” (At the Bar) and “Au Palais de Glace” (At the Palais de Glace), both from 1909, he managed to make a name for himself in the humorist milieu for a short time. Yet he  had already stopped living as a bohemian and flaneur—which was a prerequisite for earning that reputation—at the start of 1908. #mmk #mmkfrankfurt #museummmk #marcelduchamp #caricature  [image description in Alt Text] ___ 1 Marcel Duchamp, installation view MUSEUM MMK, photo: Fabian Frinzel 2 Marcel Duchamp, Projet pour la Sociéte [Normande] de Peinture Moderne, 1909/1910, © Association Marcel Duchamp / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2022, photo: Axel Schneider   These works are part of the exhibition “Marcel Duchamp” at MUSEUM MMK (02.04.—03.10.22)

When in Geneva, step by mamco_geneve to see a retrospective of Jo Baer‘s works and a piece of our collection! “2 Stud: Cone and Quote“ is still on view till this sunday, 19 June at MAMCO, Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Geneva. #mmkfrankfurt #mmkcollection #mamcogeneve #jobaer [Image description: You see one half of a two pieced artwork. This artwork consists of two off-white squared canvases, that only differ slightly. On both a thick black line is painted in a square shape parallel to the canvas’ edge, on it’s inside runs a thin white line on the right, left and bottom. On the upper black line similarly thin white lines run in a different manner. On this canvas four white lines run on top of the black line forming one new line: on the left one short line runs in an angle like a turned L, next to it one runs in an arch like an elongated U, holding one white line underneath it, and another short one runs on the left like a turned L, but the other way round.] ___ Jo Baer, 2 Stud: Cone and Quote, 1962/1963, photo: Axel Schneider This work is part of the MMK Collection since 2006

This week all exhibitions will open from 10am. “Marcel Duchamp“ at MUSEUM MMK Mire Lee “Look, I’m a fountain of filth raving mad with love” at ZOLLAMT MMK  “Stéphane Mandelbaum“ at TOWER MMK #mmk #mmkfrankfurt #museummmk #marcelduchamp #zollamtmmk #mirelee #towermmk #stéphanemandelbaum [Image descriptions: 1 In front of an off-white background hangs a fragile, round ampoule made of glass, which tapers at the bottom. At the upper end, the vessel opens into a hook from which it is suspended. The vessel is closed. On it you can see some handwriting that runs all the way around it. 2 You look into a room whose floor and back wall are covered in dirty blockboards. Two used concrete mixers stand in this space, one close to the back wall on the left hand side, one very close to the viewer on the right. On the back wall someone wrote several paragraphs of poems in Korean, German and English, in this order and repeatedly, ending with an English paragraph on the bottom. The text is written very tightly and only leaves space where each one of three shell or ear like structures with holes hang. 3 This is a pencil drawing of a male read person’s portrait on off-white paper. Dark streaks of hair fall on his forehead. While his right eye is drawn in dark pencil, his left eye is barely visible.] ___ 1 Marcel Duchamp, Air de Paris, 1919/1964 , Staatliche Schlösser, Gärten und Kunstsammlungen Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Schwerin, © Association Marcel Duchamp / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2022 2 Mire Lee, Look, I’m a fountain of filth raving mad with love, 2022 (detail), photo: Axel Schneider 3 Stéphane Mandelbaum, Portrait de Meknil, 1985, Private Collection (detail)

Susanne Pfeffer: Something I’ve noticed in all your works is the sound, usually produced by machines: even though the noises seem almost incidental, they are introduced deliberately. How would you describe the role of these sounds in your oeuvre? Mire Lee: I really like it when I am dragged down to a different mode of perception, where I look at art or when making art. In the case of my work, the sound has nothing to do with conceptualization. It usually results from what I use. It might keep spectators from interpreting, because sound is something so present and something you can’t avoid. I also think it makes you super conscious of your body, being in there. Because you are looking at art, and then you can disappear and forget that you are there, that you are looking at this thing and thinking about this thing. Susanne Pfeffer: So you want the visitors to feel their bodies. Mire Lee: Yes, I think so. That’s nice!“ Read the full conversation between Mire Lee and Susanne Pfeffer on Lee‘s work „Look, I’m a fountain of filth raving mad with love“ in our booklet available at ZOLLAMT MMK! #mmkfrankfurt #zollamtmmk #mirelee #FountainOfFilth #RavingMadWithLove [Image description: You look onto the backside of a rusty concrete mixer.
