Barbara Kasten. Works

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.

Au rendez-vous des amis. Modernism in Dialogue with Contemporary Art from the Sammlung Goetz

| Pinakothek der Moderne

With its multitude of new artistic styles Classical Modernism has been a source of inspiration for successive generations of artists. In the early 20th century the avant garde paved the way for a more liberal treatment of colour, line and perspective, and drafted models for the shaping of a new community. A number of artists, however, have critically examined the legacy of Modernism and questioned the treatment of the body, gender, and identity.
These positive and critical impulses are reflected in the new presentation of the 13 rooms of Classical Modernism, in which some 120 works meet 80 contemporary artworks from the Sammlung Goetz. In the process, the presentation of paintings has been widened to include other media such as photography, sculpture and works on paper, as well as textile art, some objects being exhibited for the first time.
