Hamburg Erotic Art Museum
Frahm’s life’s work, which looks at first sight like a colourful picture book of all the stereotypes in Hamburg’s Kiez nightclub district, turns out on closer examination to be a subtle, often ironic commentary. There is also a bar with local character, a piano and it is all surrounded by 650 works of Friedrich Frahm.

Friedrich Frahm, impressed by St. Pauli’s local colour, has created “icons” of a quite unique kind. Here he has consciously broken away from the tension existing in the history of collage between abstract gimmicks and popular art, and has moved explicitly towards the popular. The naive momentum of his individual exhibits is intensified further by the way they are arranged “en masse” (his collages even cover the ceilings), and their effect is brought to bear particularly vividly in the museum’s new premises.

His collages are bizarre and multifaceted, and have already led to Friedrich Frahm being affectionately dubbed the “Karl May of St. Pauli“. Friedrich Frahm became known through his door collages for the former german chancellor Helmut Schmidt, Rudolf Augstein (Spiegel), Henri Nannen (Stern) and the photographer Günther Zint.
