Arte Povera. Work and documents from Sammlung Goetz from 1958 to the present
June 22, 1997 – October 31, 1998 | exhibition tour

Sammlung Goetz holds one of the most important and extensive collections of Arte Povera, including early, typical and key works, work groups as well as an archive with photographs and documents about the movement. This international traveling exhibition confirms the relevance and meaning of Arte Povera for our age.

At the end of the 1960s, young Italian artists in Turin and Milan began to work with objects that were foreign to art, ephemeral and simple or everyday materials. The term 'Arte Povera' was coined by art critic Germano Celant, who organized a group exhibition in 1967 in Genoa under the title Arte Povera e IM Spazio.

Works of Arte Povera formed the start of Ingvild Goetz's intensive collecting activities; they remain one of the collection's main focuses. Ingvild Goetz had even started exhibiting artists from this direction in the 1970s, during her activities as a gallery owner. "I liked the unconventional methods of these artists in conveying their work. In addition, they reflected the European zeitgeist," she says, explaining her interest. "Earlier, artists had gotten away from the canvas. But the real break came with Arte Povera."

The Neues Museum Weserburg in Bremen is the first stop of this international traveling exhibition tour, which will end in 1999-2000 with a large two-part finale in Sammlung Goetz.
