I am a Problem, Frankfurter Museum für Moderne Kunst, until February 18, 2018

‘I am a problem’ – yes, that’s the name of an exhibition staged by theatre director Ersan Mondtag at the Frankfurter Museum für Moderne Kunst. As can be imagined, it focuses on all of the neuroses, complexes, fears, and weaknesses of people today.

The conceptual point of departure is the legend that famous opera diva Maria Callas (1912–1977), who was overweight, once swallowed a tape worm along with a gulp of champagne. According to the rumour, the tape worm helped her to lose 50 kilograms in a relatively short amount of time. The efforts of Callas (and so many others) to adapt her appearance to some mythical ideal and the resulting breakdown of her body is one of the themes of the exhibition. Visitors are taken inside a gigantic stomach and tapeworm made by the Plastique Fantastique art group, and along these darkened passageways they meet the side effects of people’s often absurd and fanatic aspirations of becoming something they are not. The artists featured in the exhibition include some of the most prominent names in art in the 20th and 21st centuries: Andy Warhol, Vanessa Beecroft, Oliviero Toscani, Robert Gober, Kader Attia, and Bruce Nauman.
