Double Feature

01. MARCH – 31. DEC. 2015

The SCHIRN has chosen the name “Double Feature” for a series of events that focuses on a medium which now plays a pivotal role in art production, namely film. Regularly, on the last Wednesday of the month, national and international artists present one film of their own and one of their favorite movies.

Exhibition

ANDREAS SCHULZE
PEA ROADS

18. SEP. – 11. JAN. 2015

HELENE SCHJERFBECK

02. OCT. – 11. JAN. 2015

In the fall and winter of 2014, the SCHIRN will present the most important Finnish artist of the first half of the twentieth century – Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) – in a solo exhibition. Schjerfbeck’s works bear witness to impressive intensity. While her painterly oeuvre attracts a great deal of attention in Scandinavia, she is largely unknown abroad.

Exhibition

GERMAN POP

06. NOV. – 08. FEB. 2015

In Great Britain and the United States, the 1960s brought forth a cultural movement that would have an impact worldwide. Its universal claim to popularity is already evident in its name – the movement ostensibly fit for the masses was called “Pop Art.” Artists such as Christa Dichgans, Sigmar Polke, Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Klapheck, and Peter Roehr developed a specifically West German version of Pop Art that went beyond mere “coca-colonization.”

POETRY OF THE METROPOLIS

05. FEB. – 25. MAI 2015

In the 1950s, the “Affichistes” came forward with a complete new concept of the panel painting. On their rambles through the streets of postwar Paris, they collected fragments of ubiquitous, overlayered, often weathered and tattered posters and elevated the world of everyday urban life
itself to the status of a painting.

Exhibition

A SECRET HISTORY OF MODERN ART

06. MARCH – 14. JUNE 2015

The importance of artists-come-naturists and social revolutionaries of the early 20th century for the works of Schiele, Kupka, Beuys and Hundertwasser is for art of the modern era a little known and in large parts still untold story.

Exhibition

ALICJA KWADE

26. MARCH – 14. JUNE 2015

Alicja Kwade deals in her rotunda installation with the actual movement of time which will have a direct impact on the space and on visitors alike.

Exhibition

DOUG AITKEN

09. JULY – 27. SEP. 2015

Doug Aitken's spectacular film and sound works take visitors on a synaesthetic journey around the world and into themselves – in an irresistible maelstrom of expressive images and rhythmic landscapes.

Exhibition

DANIEL RICHTER
HELLO, I LOVE YOU

09. OCT. – 17. JAN. 2016

Daniel Richter's method consists in repeatedly questioning the possibilities of painting. In his first solo exhibition in Frankfurt stays Richter true to himself and presents a concentrated selection of his most recent works in which he thinks about painting and paints thinking.

Exhibition
