Emotion Eins
FRANKFURT  •  Frankfurter Kunstverein  •  Ongoing
Emotion Eins is a production of the Ursula Blickle Foundation in cooperation with the Frankfurter Kunstverein. According to its organizers, Emotion Eins doesn't claim to present a new emotional quality of contemporary art, but seeks instead to place the rhetoric of our feelings squarely in the foreground.

Art doesn't just move, bewilder or fascinate the viewer with the subject matter it is conveying but also through the way and manner of communication. Seduction techniques taken from cinema and mass media are often jump-started with universal themes that everyone can relate to: the yearning for change and rebellion, the fascination of beauty, as well as the loss of youth, and the futile search for self-realization and individual happiness. In this current art production it is the dealing with and coming to terms with the promise of lifestyle and the desire for new patterns of "belonging" that is the primary issue being not only addressed here but also challenged.

On view are works by Fikret Atay, Vanessa Beecroft, Marc Brandenburg, Duncan Campbell, Sebastian Diaz Morales, Rineke Dijkstra, Matias Faldbakken, Ulrike Feser, Liam Gillick, Alexander Gutke, Richard Hawkins, Carsten Holler, Laura Horelli, Nestor Kruger, Hans-Jorg Mayer, Shahryar Nashat, Mark Raidpere, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Egle Rakauskaite, RothStauffenberg, Stiina Saaristo, Seifollah Samadian, Kevin Schmidt, David Shrigley, Javier Tellez, Su-Mei Tse, Gavin Turk, and Gitte Villesen/ Lars Erik Frank, Markus Weisbeck, Andro Wekua and Florian Wust.
