„This art is not critical in the traditional sense of the word, as it lacks a position to peform criticism from. But the way of grasping, repeating, multiplying the given reality, challenging the dominating social, aesthetic and gender norms it is subverse.“ (Noemi Smolik)


With Matthew Barney, Carroll Dunham, Robert Gober, Peter Halley, Jenny Holzer, Mike Kelley, Jonathan Lasker, Louise Lawler, Cady Noland, Raymond Pettibon, Paul Pfeiffer, Richard Prince, Jessica Stockholder and Andrea Zittel.

Sammlung Goetz has extensive holdings of American art from the 1980s and 1990s. Characteristic for this period is a great diversity of modes of expression and media. Based on their own biographical experiences, the artists featured in this exhibition reflect sociopolitical issues in their works. Curator Noemi Smolik has selected 14 artistic positions together with Sammlung Goetz for the exhibition in the Rudolfinum in Prague. After 40 years of socialism, she hopes to stimulate discussion about contemporary art and the role of private collectors in the Czech Republic.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, "Untitled", 1992

An exhibition project by the Sammlung Goetz in public space

The black-and-white photograph "Untitled" (1992) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, in which a figure’s ghostly shadow is captured on a billowing curtain, is part of the artist’s billboard series. The concept behind the work is that the owner produces the image as a public poster. Regardless of how often it is printed, it is always unique. In the context of Munich’s Various Others project, the Sammlung Goetz is presenting "Untitled" (1992) on five billboards in around the city and in front of its own exhibition building in Munich.

Cyrill Lachauer. I am not sea, I am not land

Sammlung Goetz in Haus der Kunst

Cyrill Lachauer (*1979 in Rosenheim, lives and works in Berlin and Los Angeles) develops his extensive projects on long journeys, and delves deeply into the local cultures of the places he visits. For the exhibition by the Sammlung Goetz in the former air-raid shelter of Haus der Kunst, Lachauer has created a new multi-part installation, which includes films, videos, photographs and texts.
