At the initiative of the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain nine regional institutions have joined together to show outstanding international contemporary photographers and video artists from around the Rhine-Main region. The exhibition MAKING HISTORY will take place at three central locations: the Frankfurter Kunstverein, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, and at the MMK Zollamt. MAKING HISTORY presents works of art that examine the way that media images stage reality. The artists do not offer any sort of prefabricated models of history, but rather, they make it possible to recognize very different, subjective perspectives of historical events. This publication features about 38 of the artists in the show, from Harun Farocki to Jeff Wall to Oliviero Toscani, arranging them in order within the thematic context.
Exhibition schedule: Frankfurter Kunstverein, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, MMK Zollamt, April 20–July 8, 2012 And further venues
