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

The Sammlung Goetz honors the artist Imi Knoebel on the occasion of his 80th birthday with a retrospective exhibition. The entire spectrum of Knoebel’s artistic oeuvre will be presented, starting with his black and white photographs from the 1960s to his collages made of multicolored paper and his objects cast in concrete and ending with his most recent paintings in acrylic on aluminum. The presentation also includes Knoebel’s geometrical, minimalist works as well as his expressive paintings from the 1980s, which have rarely been shown until now.

Barbara Kasten. Works

Sammlung Goetz BASE 103

Autumn/Winter 2021

The American artist Barbara Kasten has created an impressive artistic oeuvre over her career spanning from the 1970s to the present. At the center of Kasten’s work are her abstract, geometric color photographs from the 1980s, which explore the interplay of light and dark and afford new spatial experiences. The Sammlung Goetz, which has extensive holdings of works by Kasten, is mounting the artist’s first solo exhibition in Europe in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. A selection of the extensive retrospective will be on view in the Sammlung Goetz in Munich.
