Museum of Modern Art
The Museum of Modern Art is one of the highlights among contemporary art collections in Europe. The focus of the collection is on Pop Art, object art and room installations, including works by Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Roy Lichtenstein and by Joseph Beuys and Reiner Ruthenbeck. The museum is continually extending its presentation of American and European Art from 1960 to international works of the present and also offers space to young artists and new forms of art.
The building, which was opened in 1991, presents its exhibits in an impressive manner, in the so-called ‘piece of cake’ that the people of Frankfurt call the triangular building near to the Cathedral. The tour through the approximately forty rooms resembles a journey of discovery: the architect, Hans Hollein, has created crossovers and links that open up new and surprising perspectives. The way the light falls shows the objects to their best advantage.
Special exhibitions consistently ensure that there is a change of perspective. Through its mixture of high-quality works and surprising innovations, the Museum of Modern Art also conveys the link to the very latest positions and guarantees an exceptional visitor experience.
