Diversity is also writ large in Frankfurt in the museum landscape. This becomes clear once again when you look at the exhibition preview of the 38 museums on the Museumsufer. In the coming months, visitors can expect curios and spectacular, quiet and loud, small finds and large overviews in a unique variety! From antiquity to modernity, from film to urban history, there really is something for every taste in art.
"The Museumsufer also offers exciting projects and exhibitions for the people of Frankfurt and their guests in 2022! I am pleased that the museum directors and their staff have succeeded in sticking to their programmatically and artistically demanding concepts and implementing them with great commitment despite the continuing difficult pandemic situation," says Ina Hartwig, Head of the Department of Culture and Science. "I would particularly like to highlight our new member: the German Romantic Museum is the 38th museum in our association, to which we extend a warm welcome! The novel presentation of the originals through a multimedia exhibition form, which makes it possible to experience the Romantic period as a key German and European epoch, is decidedly successful and an enrichment for Frankfurt's museum landscape."
A remarkable exhibition project is that of the Historical Museum on National Socialism in Frankfurt, consisting of three special shows: "A city joins in - Frankfurt and the NS" and "With the city laboratory in search of traces in today - Frankfurt and the NS", both on view since 9. December 2021 to September 11, as well as "Nachgefragt: Frankfurt und der NS" from December 9, 2021 to April 23, 2023 in the Junges Museum, which deals with the topic in a way that is suitable for children. The Schirn Kunsthalle also deals with this period and artists who did not find or seek affiliation with National Socialism in "KUNST FÜR KEINEN. 1933-1945" from March 4 to June 6, before the exhibition hall comes up with an absolute highlight in the fall of 2022 with "Chagall. World in Turmoil" from November 4 to February 19, 2023.
Great and world-renowned art on a meta-level is approached by the Museum für Moderne MMK with "Marcel Duchamp" from March 19 to 18. September in the main building, while in the customs office MMK John Cage's "Museumcircle" is implemented from December 11, 2021 to March 20.
Since fall 2020 for renovation is closed the German Architecture Museum. However, in its interim quarters, the DAM Ostend at Henschelstrasse 16a, the museum will be showing the exhibition "DAM PREIS 2022. The best buildings in/from Germany" from January 29 to March 27 and "SCHÖN HIER. Architecture in the countryside" at the Hessenpark open-air museum.
