„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.

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.

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.
