What's New Pussycat?
New Acquisitions 2002-2005 Museum Für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main
Essays by Udo Kittelmann and Klaus Gàrner.
What makes a museum what it is? The answer Udo Kittelmann has given as the Director since 2002 of the Frankfurt/Main Museum for Modern Art is clear enough: "The collection is the supporting pillar of any museum. The focus of the work lies in the build-up, the cultivation and the expansion of the collection, in the exhibition of others." The voluminous What's New, Pussycat? introduces 200 of the finest works with which Kittellmann has put his money where his mouth is, and documents the ongoing evolution of the important collection he helms. Featured artists include Francis Alys, Marcel Duchamp, Lucian Freud, Douglas Gordan, On Kawara, Bruce Nauman, Steven Parrino, David Reed, Santiago Sierra, Elaine Sturtevant, Kara Walker and Andy Warhol.
