The MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt am Main presents the work Commission by Dutch artist Erik van Lieshout (b. 1968), which he has redeveloped specifically for the museum. The MMK is extremely pleased about the acquisition of the installation, which will be shown as part of the upcoming collection display Fotografie Total: Works from the MMK Collection (3 June 2012–13 January 2013).
The installation revolves primarily around a film set in the Zuidplein shopping mall in South Rotterdam. In 2010, the artist opened a small temporary shop in Zuidplein. Rather than sales merchandise, he offered his customers worn-out articles of everyday use, which he gave them free of charge.
