THE ENCRYPTION GARDEN – A SOUND INSTALLATION IN THE STÄDEL GARDEN

Within the framework of the series "In the Städel Garden”, the artists Alan B. Brock-Richmond (b. 1970) and Bernhard Schreiner (b. 1971), both residents of Frankfurt, are developing a sound installation: in the summer of 2014, this work will add an acoustic dimension to the entire rear Städel Garden with its distinctive green hill. The four-channel installation Encryption Garden, which will be audible in the Städel Garden for the duration of six weeks from 22 July to 31 August, will combine previously produced sound montages of recordings made in the Städel Garden with sounds created live during four concerts in that venue.

LICHTBILDER. PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE STÄDEL MUSEUM FROM THE BEGINNINGS TO 1960

In 1845, the Frankfurt Städel was the first art museum in the world to exhibit photographic works. The invention of the new medium had been announced in Paris just six years earlier, making 2014 the 175th anniversary of that momentous event. In keeping with the tradition it thus established, the Städel is now devoting a comprehensive special exhibition to European photo art – "Lichtbilder. Photography at the Städel Museum from the Beginnings to 1960” – presenting the photographic holdings of the museum’s Modern Art Department, which have recently undergone significant expansion.
