12 months / 12 films - Explorations in Space
April 17, 2015 - May 1,2016 | Museum Folkwang, Essen

The joint exhibition of the Goetz Collection and the Museum Folkwang takes us on a journey through time and space. Over the course of a year, in monthly rotation, 12 videos and films by major contemporary artists from the Goetz Collection will be presented in the museum’s film room.

Concepts of space are as varied as the term itself. The twelve artists gathered in the exhibition at the Museum Folkwang are not primarily interested in defining physical space. In their videos and films they instead question the function of rooms, explore their limits, crossing these, and create new spaces that are beyond the classical concept of space and time.

The starting point is often the urban space, as in the works of Nira Pereg, Sarah Morris and Francis Alÿs, but here it is a symbol of social and socio-political conflicts. In a theatrical installation, Hans Op de Beeck briefly animates built spaces in a model. In Paris Green, Ed Atkins explores the influence of media images on our conception of space.
In the work of Jesper Just dream, reality and memory come together and create a fictional place that reflects the complex inner feelings of his protagonist. The exhibition "12 Months / 12 Films - Explorations in Space" at the Museum Folkwang is designed as a journey that leads to particular places and spaces beyond the traditional notions of space.

With works by Doug Aitken, Francis Alÿs, Ed Atkins, Hans Op de Beeck, Stan Douglas, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Jesper Just, William Kentridge, Mark Leckey, Sarah Morris, Nira Pereg, Liang Zhao

Curators: Dr. Cornelia Gockel (Goetz Collection), Dr. Mario-Andreas von Lüttichau (Museum Folkwang) and Dr. Marcel Schumacher
