Arte Povera. The Great Awakening
September 9, 2012 – February 3, 2013 | Kunstmuseum Basel

Boetti, Kounellis, Merz, Pistoletto from Sammlung Goetz

This exhibit at the Kunstmuseum Basel will present works of the Arte Povera from Sammlung Goetz with the critical historical distance of current art historians who not only understand the “Arte Povera” phenomenon as a construct of its theoreticians and curators but who are also elaborating more and more on the individuality of the movement’s protagonists. Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Emilio Prini and Gilberto Zorio will be represented with circa 100 artworks.

This extensive collection also formed the prelude to Ingvild Goetz’s intensive collecting activities at the beginning of the 1990s. It was rapidly followed by purchases based on holdings from Ingvild Goetz’s previous activities as an art dealer with excellent intuition, and developed into one of the most significant private collections of Arte Povera. At the end of the 1990s, Arte Povera – Arbeiten und Dokumente aus der Sammlung Goetz 1958 bis heute (Arte Povera – Works and Documents from Sammlung Goetz, 1958 Until Today) was presented to the public in the Kunstmuseum Weserburg Bremen, the Kunsthalle Nuremberg, the Cologne Kunstverein, the Palais Liechtenstein Vienna, the Konsthallen Gothenburg and then at Sammlung Goetz itself in Munich.

Arte Povera.Der grosse Aufbruch (Arte Povera.The Great Awakening) will be curated by the director of the Kunstmuseum Basel, Dr. Bernhard Mendes Bürgi.
