In 2015, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst will once again serve as a key partner to the RAY Fotografieprojekte Frankfurt/RheinMain. Following the successful first edition of the international photography triennial in 2012, RAY 2015 will once again present outstanding international positions of contemporary photography, thus bringing together the special qualities of the collections and institutions represented in Frankfurt and the region in a unique collaboration.


The MMK will present the main exhibition, IMAGINE REALITY, in collaboration with the Museum Angewandte Kunst and the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt. The photographic approaches featured in this show will focus above all on the boundaries between documentary, photo-journalistic, applied and artistic photography. The MMK 1 will present exclusive new productions commissioned by RAY 2015 as well as artistic works addressing subjective and staged realities. RAY 2015 will show how photography not only reproduces our reality, but also itself creates new realities.

RAY 2015 is an initiative of the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain and a cooperative undertaking of the Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Darmstädter Tage der Fotografie, Sammlung Deutsche Bank, DZ BANK Kunstsammlung, Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Marta Hoepffner-Gesellschaft für Fotografie e.V. / Stadtmuseum Hofheim, Museum Angewandte Kunst, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, Museum Wiesbaden, NKV Nassauischer Kunstverein and Stiftung Opelvillen Rüsselsheim.
