THE NEW HUMAN, NEW HOUSING – The architecture of Neues Frankfurt 1925 – 1933

OPENING: Fri, March 22, 2019, 7 p.m.
PRESS CONFERENCE: Thu, March 21, 2019, 11 a.m.

In the 1920s, Frankfurt/Main emerged as an archetypal metropolis of the Modern Age. In many fields the architects working on behalf of the City were performing pioneering work, which in the 1920s gave Frankfurt a worldwide reputation as a Modernist stronghold and would define architecture and urban development for decades to come.

The exhibition is part of the cooperation between three municipal museums (Museum Angewandte Kunst, Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Historisches Museum Frankfurt), the recently founded Forum Neues Frankfurt (run by the ernst-may-gesellschaft e.V.), and the City of Frankfurt. This joint initiative represents Frankfurt’s contribution to the Bauhaus anniversary celebrations.
