"Change of Scene XVII"
2000-02-04 until 2000-09-03
Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt
Frankfurt, , DE Germany

With Change of Scene XVII a short era draws to a close for the MMK. On the one hand, this first 'Change of Scene' in the third millennium marks the end of an old exhibition rhythm. Yet, at the same time it heralds the beginning of a new one. Since the MMK first opened, our six-monthly exhibitions have always started either at the beginning of June or the end of January. As of Change of Scene XVIII, scheduled to open at the end of September 2000, we will be adapting the rhythm to the international norm. And as of 2001, our exhibitions will always start at the end of March/beginning of April or the end of September/beginning of October.

Change of Scene XVII will take the form of an open dialog and interaction, presenting some familiar and some new rooms, with works from our collection, a number of new acquisitions and some specially selected loans from private and public collections.

Change of scene XVII was first made possible by a generous donation received from Morgan Stanley Dean Witter. My sincere thanks go out to Dr. Lutz Raettig, who has constantly supported this project and has followed our work with great interest. We have him to thank for the fact that we are able to move forward into the third millennium with our usual verve.

In the MMK's central hall visitors will be greeted by large-format portraits, as has been the case in earlier exhibitions. Some years ago it was Thomas Ruff's large photos, later Alex Katz's Smile paintings, and today we are presenting large-format color photos by Beat Streuli (born in 1957) which are part of our collection but which have not yet been shown. These are photographs of young people from different nations who have come together here as if to take part in an international, multi-ethnic dialog.
