"The SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT is one of Europe.s most renowned exhibition institutions. Since 1986, more than 100 exhibitions have been realized, including major surveys dedicated to Expressionism, Dada, and Surrealism, the history of photography, or contemporary positions in sound art... The Schirn.s complex of buildings, designed and planned by the architectural firm of Bangert, Jansen, Scholz & Schultes and with an exhibition space of 2000 m2, created a modern connection between the central historical structures of the cathedral and the R�mer city hall. The founding of the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt took place during the culturally fruitful period between 1970 and 1990 under Frankfurt.s deputy mayor for cultural affairs, Hilmar Hoffmann, a period that also saw the famed Frankfurt Museumsufer (Museum Riverbank) achieve its present importance. Since 1986 the Schirn has formed a center of urban integration in the heart of Germany.s business metropolis, and it is an impulse for cultural discussion of European rank".
