Nacht der Museen – A vibrant night with jazz and art

04.05.2024, 19:30

The Frankfurter Kunstverein invites you to the Nacht der Museen (Night of the Museums) to discover the exhibition Who has Power? Striking Bodies (04.05.-04.08.2024) with an exciting programme. The double exhibition presents new works by Sonja Yakovleva and Gintarė Sokelytė, two emerging artists from Frankfurt whose radical approach stages the themes of today’s generation as monumental installations.

Papercutting workshop with the artist Sonja Yakovleva
at 7.30 pm

Exclusively for the Nacht der Museen (Night of the Museums), Sonja Yakovleva is offering a workshop in which visitors can get creative and realise feminist motifs from fairy tales, mythology and pop culture using the technique of paper cutting.

The papercutting workshop will take place between 7.30 and 9.30 pm in the exhibition spaces of the Frankfurter Kunstverein. Scissors and cardboard paper will be provided. The offer is aimed at adults and children.

We ask for your understanding that capacities during the workshop are limited. It is not possible to register in advance. Participation is free of charge.

Jazz house concert with Noomi Mae Coleman and her band NOOMAE
at 9 pm

The highlight of the evening programme at Frankfurter Kunstverein is the concert by the young Frankfurt jazz house singer Noomi Mae Coleman and her band NOOMAE. At 9 pm, she will present her music for the first time to an audience in Frankfurt. NOOMAE creates a lively soundscape that skilfully interweaves elements of neo-soul, RnB and jazz. Singer Noomi Mae Coleman’s warm voice lends a unique intensity to the lyrics about self-discovery, love and social phenomena, while Ursula Wienken’s sensitive bass and Jonas Heck’s groovy drumming form the rhythmic foundation. Lukas Langguth’s lively piano playing completes the band’s sound.

The musical programme is a cooperation between the Frankfurter Kunstverein and Jazz Montez e.V.

Short guided tour with Paula Maß through the exhibition
at 10.30 pm

A short tour of the exhibition accompanied by Paula Maß rounds off the evening for art enthusiasts. The practice and themes of the artists Gintarė Sokelytė and Sonja Yakovleva will be discussed on the basis of selected examples of new works created for the Frankfurter Kunstverein.


Drinks and snacks are provided by Café im Kunstverein.
