Group projects

During the second and the third semester, each class creates a curatorial project in cooperation with the university lecturers, the Städelschule and the cooperating museums. It is the students’ task to develop and realize a concept within a given frame.

In 2023, the students accompanied the creation of the three-part LED video sculpture “All, Humans” by Raqs Media Collective. The collective had won the “Kunst am Bau” competition organized by the state of Hesse for the building of the Department of Linguistics and Cultural Studies at Goethe University. In close collaboration with Raqs, the students, supported by Stefanie Heraeus, developed the festive inauguration of the installation, several discussion and mediation formats with experts from various disciplines as well as a booklet.

In 2022, as part of “Gasthof 2022” at Städelschule, the focus turned to the practice and meaning of food – not least as an artistic medium. For this, the students created the exhibition series “Three Course Menu” with works by Arhun Aksakal, Gleb Amankulov, Emily Dietrich, Malin Dorn, Tornike Gognadze, Raúl Itamar Lima, Rogine Moradi, Gabriel Naghmouchi, Anna Michelle Nakhoul, Anna Pazzoli, Simon Shim-Sutcliffe, Ian Waelder, and Brandon Wylie.

In 2021, as a follow-up to a seminar by Susanne Gaensheimer and Stefanie Heraeus, the students chose Jaider Esbell, Jamie Shi, Line Lyhne, and Lisa Gutscher for the exhibition titled “facets, faces” at the fffriedrich project space. These four artistic positions reflected on the role of identities within contemporary institutional and artistic practices.

In 2020 the students, together with Stefanie Heraeus and Christina Lehnert, developed the exhibition ‘Moving Plants’ in cooperation with the Palmengarten Frankfurt, with site-specific works by Rachel Elizabeth Ashton, Zheng Bo, Cooking Sections, Rashiyah Elanga, Agnese Galiotto, Graham Hamilton, Zishi Han, Zac Langdon-Pole and Nina Nadig.

In 2019 the students developed a temporary ‘Museum der Kritik’ together with Stefanie Heraeus and Christina Lehnert. Using the medium of performance, they explored the future political potential of the institution museum together with Nuray Demir, Toon Leën, Thomas Geiger and Simon Pfeffel.

In 2018, the exhibition series ‘Subject:Fwd:Unknown’ took place in the project space fffriedrich responding to the dialogical works by the artists Leo Asemota and Násito Mosquito exhibited in the Portikus. This project was realized together with Stefanie Heraeus and Christina Lehnert.

The group exhibition ‘After facts – Pudding Explosion rearticulated’ took place in an empty storefront in Frankfurt in 2016 and was inspired by the headshop “Pudding explosion” which was opened in 1968 by the artist Peter Roehr in collaboration with the later gallerist Paul Maenz.

Invited by the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation in 2017, the students developed the exhibition ‘The Biography of Things’ on photographic works by the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach together with Anne Marie Beckmann, Stefanie Heraeus, and Martin Liebscher.

In 2015, they conceived the exhibition series ‘Doppelzimmer’ for the mezzanine floor 3 ½ at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin with Ellen Blumenstein, Stefanie Heraeus, and Nina Mende.

In 2014, they created the cabinet exhibition ‘Vergessene Koerper: Helmut Kolle und Max Beckmann’ in cooperation with the Städel Museum and together with Stefanie Heraeus, Felicity Korn, and Felix Krämer.

In 2013, the students curated a performance and film program in cooperation with the museum MMK for Modern Art and together with Peter Gorschlüter, Stefanie Heraeus, and Bernd Reiß for the Pentrável PN 14, one of the most spectacular room installations by the Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticia.
