STILL LIFE. Photography from the Stiftung Ann und Jürgen Wilde in Dialogue with works from the Sammlung Goetz

The presentation in the Pinakothek der Moderne of still life photographs from the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation and the Sammlung Goetz continues the dialogue between works of different collections that began with the show Au rendez-vous des amis.

With Florence Henri, Albert Renger-Patzsch and Wolfgang Tillmans.

The focus of the current presentation is photography, an artform that experienced great shifts in aesthetics and reception during the twentieth century. Both collections were built by private individuals and reflect their creators’ distinct interests. The collection of Ann and Jürgen Wilde focuses on avant-garde artists from the 1920s and 1930s, while the Sammlung Goetz aspires to build a bridge between contemporary art and other artistic media and processes. For the juxtaposition of the impressive holdings of both collections, the curators have selected the still life, a genre that has its roots in painting but continues to play an essential role in photographic images today.

Curated by Simone Förster and Karsten Löckemann

(Not) A Doll’s House. Traditional Roles and Brand-New Images

| Münchner Stadtmuseum

The Puppet Theater / Fairground Attraction Collection was a Münchner Stadtmuseum permanent exhibition on puppeteering history for over 30 years during which time it penned its own chapter for the annals of history. “(Not) A Doll’s House. Traditional Roles and Brand-New Images” is the result of interdisciplinary cooperation with the Sammlung Goetz and the Münchner Stadtmuseum Photography Collection. With the impending refurbishment and temporary close-down of the museum, it has seized the opportunity to stimulate a dialog between the museum’s collections and contemporary artworks.
