Museum Production
Deutsche Bank Foundation Sponsors Talk Series at the MMK

In podium discussions with illustrious participants, the Frankfurt Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) is focusing on the museum as a place of artistic production. The talk series Museum Production was conceived by the architect and curator Nikolaus Hirsch, who will succeed Daniel Birnbaum as the rector of the Städelschule starting in the winter term of 2010/2011. The series is being sponsored by the Deutsche Bank Foundation. International artists, critics and scientists will discuss different connections between the institution and the works shown there. Contemporary art museums have become much more than just places of presentation - art is not only exhibited there, but also produced, curated, researched, and imparted.

Under the title Building the Museum, Tobias Rehberger and David Adjaye will chat about different roles in museum construction. The Frankfurt-based artist and British architect (who designed the temporary tent construction for the Frieze Art Fair in 2003-2005 and has already worked with artists, including Olafur Eliasson and Chris Ofili) will address the issue of whether today's architects are increasingly becoming artists as well. As the first talk in the Museum Production series, this event was actually supposed to take place in April, but it had to be postponed due to the cloud of ash over Europe produced by the volcano Eyjafjallajökull. Adjaye could not come to Frankfurt because his flight was cancelled, and now the event will be held at September 10.

While the talk between Shuddhabrata Sengupta of the artist group Raqs Media Collective and the critic Tom Holert will revolve around the museum as a place of "knowledge production", the museum expert Jan Debbaut and the artist Marysia Lewandowska will discuss the future of the museum as a public institution in a talk entitled Access & Distribution (or: Who Owns the Public Museum?), which will be moderated by Susanne Gaensheimer, director of the MMK. Other participants in the series will include the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, the choreographer Boris Charmatz, and the artists Walid Raad and Tino Sehgal.
