A Tale of Two Worlds

Experimental Latin American Art in Dialogue with the MMK Collection 1940s–1980s

Art and culture in dialogue: In a large exhibition in cooperation with the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, the MMK Frankfurt am Main is dedicating itself to the interwoven perspectives of two continents and cultures.

The exhibition examines commonalities, differences, and intellectual links between artists from different parts of the world as well as the challenges that cultural exchange brings along with it through juxtaposing above all the European-North American canon and Latin America experimental art.

This large accompanying publication presents new and surprising relationships between cultures in fascinating essays by renowned authors.

Featuring the work of over 100 artists including: Carl Andre, Lothar Baumgarten, Alighiero Boetti, Lygia Clark, Walter de Maria, Cildo Meireles, León Ferrari, Lucio Fontana, Jasper Johns, Ana Mendieta, Yves Klein, Anna Maria Maiolino, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Pape, and Robert Rauschenberg.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, A Tale of Two Worlds at MMK Museum for Modern Art, Frankfurt (25 November 2017 – 2 April 2018), and at Museo de Arte Moderno, Buenos Aires (7 June 2018 – 14 October 2018).
