Thomas Schütte
March 19 – August 11, 2001 | Goetz Collection

A fundamental distrust of art institutions is the characteristic element in the works of Thomas Schütte. He subtly formulates this criticism with seemingly classic works.

The Sammlung Goetz holds over 50 works by Schütte from the past 20 years. These represent various complexes of works created during his years of study at the Academy in Dusseldorf up to the present day. They also reflect the collector's personal interest in the artist, however. In close cooperation with Thomas Schütte, a retrospective was developed with a scope not seen since the mid-1990s in Germany. The exhibit includes examples of his architectural models, sculptures, installations, water colors, photographs and drawings as well as studies from the early 1980s that have never been shown.
Schütte's skepticism about the traditional conception of art and its function in public spaces is manifested throughout. It is also expressed by the radical and experimental practice of including unsuccessful attempts as part of the artist's oeuvre.

Thomas Schütte (born in 1954 in Oldenburg, D, lives and works in Dusseldorf, D).
