"When one takes a closer look at British art of the 1990s and subtracts the unnecessary hype surrounding it, these artists demonstrate a sensitivity and sophistication, almost a shameless audacity in their imaginative and direct confrontation with the three main themes concerning humanity – life, death and sex – that does complete justice to them and their reputation."
Gilda Williams

At the end of the 1980s, an exciting new art scene developed in London against the backdrop of the pop culture. With their daring, offensive and direct imagery, they focused on basic socio-political questions of sexuality, identity, power, oppression and exclusion. In 1988, Damien Hirst presented the legendary exhibition Freeze in an empty warehouse in the London Docklands area, thereby founding the myth of the 'Young British Artists'. Their subsequent success on the art market was due to the commitment of advertising mogul Charles Saatchi, who visited the exhibition and began to collect works by the still young artists. In 1997, he displayed them in the exhibition Sensation in the Royal Academy in London.

Ingvild Goetz followed the development of the British art scene with great interest. Her collection contains key works of the 'Young British Artists' such as Smoking Room, 1997, by Sarah Lukas, Untitled (Concave and Convex Beds), 1992 by Rachel Whiteread or Why I Never Became a Dancer, 1995, by Tracey Emin. The two-part exhibition Art from the UK presents installations, films, photographs and works on paper from the 1990s by nine British artists from the collection holdings.
