6 May - 16 July 2023

Portikus organizes Assembly, a series of interventions in public space featuring works by James Gregory Atkinson, Thomas Bayrle, Ayşe Erkmen, Slavs and Tatars, and Sung Tieu.

Institutions, much like living organisms, are influenced by, coexist with, and depend on their environment. For Assembly, Portikus invites five artists to respond to public sites in its immediate surroundings, the neighborhood of Sachsenhausen, thus addressing its location on Frankfurt’s Alte Brücke (Old Bridge). Built in the 13th century, the bridge was instrumental  to the development of the cityscape, enabling people and businesses alike to move and settle on both sides of the river Main. Over the past centuries, Sachsenhausen has undergone numerous changes, experiencing floods, wars, and gentrification, all of which have shaped its current infrastructure. The group exhibition revolves around questions of gatherings, reflecting on the conditions and possible forms of physical assemblies that occur in public space.
