What Visitors Say About Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt Art Association)
This is a small museum with few exhibits. I beleive they do not have any permanent peices. The highlight was the virtual reality exhibition which was amazing to experience.
My Sunday activity is walking along the Mainufer and visiting art museums. Today, I was lucky enough to be one of three guests at Frankfurter Kunstverein. The current exhibition is titled The Intelligence of Plants and there was a lot to see that combined science, art and botany. I very much enjoyed the way the exhibition was curated. My favourite peace was a trippy six minutes in virtual reality. I will definitely visit this museum again and maybe even the same exhibition.
