The Museum of Modern Art (MMK), called "piece of cake" by the people of Frankfurt because of its triangular shape, is the youngest museum in Frankfurt. It was opened in June 1991.
The Viennese architect Hans Hollein has succeeded in structuring the building on the triangular site so intelligently that a walk through the museum becomes a special experience.
The sequence of connections, transitions and views between the exhibition spaces, the relationship of the individual spaces to each other, as well as the optimal lighting are already extraordinary.
The spatial experience of around forty rooms, all individually designed, has been proven to inspire the audience.
The MMK is not only a special architectural feature, however, but the exhibits are also impressive.
The focus of the permanent collection is on Pop Art, but elements of object art, conceptualism and spatial installations are also shown.
Apart from the main house there are two more branches. The MMK2 in the TaunusTurm is the newest location. Here, the most recent works from the collection and new productions are shown alternately. The MMK 3 is an exhibition room in the customs office, diagonally opposite the main building. New positions in contemporary art, collaborations and events are presented here.
