Bjørn Melhus The Oral Thing

Supported by Sammlung Goetz, the Beruflichen Schulen an der Bergsonstrasse, Munich (Vocational Schools on Bergsonstrasse, translator's note) showed Bjørn Melhus's video installation The Oral Thing (2001) from April 14 to May 13, 2005.

In this work, the artist satirizes American daytime talk shows. For the entire duration of the exhibition, the video installation was available for viewing in a specially designed black box in the school auditorium. Informational guides to assist in teaching this media-critical work had been available.

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.

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.
