Donation
Sammlung Goetz, a state-owned collection in Bavaria

On 1/1/2014, Ingvild Goetz donated 375 works of media art and her exhibition space in Oberföhring to the State of Bavaria. She retains close ties with the house, heading it in an honorary capacity. Together with the Sammlung Goetz team, she continues to curate exhibitions in the collection in Oberföhring and present works from its holdings in cooperation with other institutions as well as loaning them worldwide.
"It is my wish that the Sammlung Goetz will remain in Munich and that my exhibition space in Oberföhring will also be used in the future to present contemporary art," explains Ingvild Goetz. Her collection, as well as that of her husband and her children, contains more than 5,000 works. She made it available to the Pinakothek der Moderne, the Haus der Kunst and the Neues Museum in Nuremberg as a permanent loan for an initial 10 years. In return, the State of Bavaria has assumed responsibility for presenting contemporary art in the building in Oberföhring and taking on its employees.

The donation was announced in September 2013 – the year of the 20th anniversary of the Sammlung Goetz. The news was enthusiastically received by the public, cultural institutions, the press and politicians. "This is a unique opportunity for the state of Bavaria to secure the future of one of the most internationally recognized collections of contemporary art," said Bavarian Minister President Horst Seehofer. "It will lastingly strengthen Bavaria as a center for art and culture. The renowned Sammlung Goetz is an asset for the state's art holdings, especially in the area of media art. This is one of the most important additions to artwork in Bavaria in recent decades."
Ingvild Goetz remains active as a passionate collector of contemporary art. She continues to acquire works for the Sammlung Goetz and presents them as a donation or permanent loan to the beneficiary museums.
