Museum visitors viewing the introduction to the exhibit
View from the 6th floor of installation called 
The Happy End of Franz Kafka's "America"

Among the currently featured exhibitions at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART are the works of MARTIN KIPPENBERGER. I took the photos above of some of the art installation when I visited the MOMA earlier this afternoon.
From the MOMA website:
One of the most significant and influential artists of our time, Martin Kippenberger (1953–1997) produced a complex and richly varied body of work from the mid-1970s until his untimely death in 1997 at the age of forty-four. This ambitious, large-scale exhibition includes key selections and bodies of work from his entire career: paintings, sculpture, works on paper, installations, multiples, photographs, posters, announcement cards, books, and music. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue—published by MOCA and co-published by the MIT Press—which will constitute a comprehensive and scholarly examination of the artist's career.
