Green Room, "Welcome to Paradise”, Tuesday, 25th October, 7pm

Opening: Tuesday, 25th October, 7pm
Weltkulturen Labor, Schaumainkai 37

In the exhibition "Welcome to Paradise", Shane Munro presents a collection of artworks produced in Frankfurt for trade with US military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Made from egg-cups, expanding foam, and other materials Munro's new artworks form part one of this two-part exhibition and are based on variations of a 'Koan'. The Koan, which is central to the history and lore of Zen Buddhism, consists of a story, dialogue, question or statement the meaning of which cannot be understood through rational thought but may be accessible through intuition.

Shane Munro (*1978, Belgrade) lives and works in Frankfurt am Main. From 2007-2010 he studied with Prof. Tobias Rehberger at Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Staedelschule, Frankfurt and received the Absolventenpreis of the Staedelschule in 2010. His artworks have been shown in numerous exhibitions, including 'Terminal Convention', Cork, Ireland; 'Duck! Skylark! Duck!', Kornhaeuschen, Aschaffenburg ; 'Payloads', Landings, Oslo (2010; 'Architectooralooral', 1857, Oslo;  "Heinzenberger, Leu, 'Munro and Værslev on Guyton', Parisa Kind, Frankfurt (2009). 

The concept of the 'Green Room'  was developed by Shane Munro in March 2011. The Green Room takes its cue from special effects studios and defines the place where performers spend their final minutes before they go on stage. Exhibitions in the Green Room respond to the collection of the Museum.

Exhibition runs from 27th October – Mid-December
Opening hours: Thursday to Sunday, 12-6pm and by appointment
