I knOw yoU examines the idea of cultural capital; what it means to be European; and ideas at the core of the financial heart of Europe. It represents the exciting diversity of approach which is representative of contemporary art practice today. I knOw yoU is co-curated by artist Tobias Rehberger, architect Nikolaus Hirsch and Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator: Head of Exhibitions, IMMA.

The genesis of this exhibition focuses on the central points of Europe and harnesses its context to address European notions and questions of power and that of economic dominance within the banking industry as a prominent debate in contemporary society. The exhibition seeks to further expand this debate by examining concepts of symbolic and cultural capital alongside the role of art and creative innovation, its questions and the search for meaning in life. The current discourse of capital in Europe is overwhelmingly dominated by the discourse of economic power and structure. The particular symbol for this, especially within the media, is the European Central Bank, located in Frankfurt. The Städelschule, one of the smallest yet best known art schools in Europe, is also situated in Frankfurt. This exhibition seeks to emphasise the point that if the production of capital were to be considered in a sense other than economic, then perhaps current issues and crises could be negotiated in a different and productive way.

Some 47 artists have been invited to participate in the exhibition by including a work. Furthermore, these invited artists may nominate another practitioner, from any discipline of their choosing (ie. a poet, philosopher, musician, scientist, chef, gardener, artist etc.) whose work or practice they connect with, for inclusion in the exhibition, either on a collaborative or stand-alone basis, thereby extending the connection point for their individual discipline. The core group of artists will be selected from recent graduates of the Städelschule international academy, reflecting the ambitious undertaking made by the school in its development as a leading centre for experimental art practice.
