Die Wohltat der Kunst. Post/feminist positions of the 1990s
December 2, 2002 – March 15, 2003 | Goetz Collection

Is there a post-feminist perspective in art after 1990? And if so, how does it relate to feminist positions of the 1960s and 1970s? The exhibition Die Wohltat der Kunst in Sammlung Goetz undertakes an overview of contemporary art.

Against the backdrop of a detailed examination of gender relationships, the exhibition again raises questions about the construction of the concepts of body image and attributes of identity. The term 'post-feminism' in the subtitle does not aim to set boundaries to feminist concepts from the 1970s but to review them.
Based on the observation that female artists were fairly well represented in exhibitions and on the art market of the 1990s, this show presents works by 17 artists (15 female artists and two male artists) who deal critically with body image as manifested in our society, as well as with the balance of power. This issue is also one of the main emphases of Ingvild Goetz's collection: "I want my collection to shake up people or draw their attention – not only in the political sense but also through very good, i.e. aesthetically good art." The exhibition includes many photographs and video works that investigate and criticize the notion of the ideal body image found in the media.
This exhibition was created in collaboration with the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and presented there in modified form from September 14 to November 10, 2002. In contrast to the exhibition in Baden-Baden, the exhibition at Sammlung Goetz does not present works by Karen Kilimnik because an entire room of her works was presented in The Mystery of Painting. The same is true of Mike Kelley, whose Unisex Lovenest was shown from June to November 2000 in the collection, and Andrea Zittel, to whom the next exhibition will be dedicated.
