This film still shows two superimposed shots of London Tower Bridge, which has opened its flaps to allow larger ships to pass through. In the background, there is actually a smaller steamboat from which black smoke is coming out. In the upper part of the picture, there is in turn a pair of eyes that look intensively into the camera and are flanked by the open locks.

Through the new technologies, media images have spread into nearly all areas of life. Often, this wealth of information can only be selectively perceived, as when skimming a book. In our accelerated day and age, video has become a means of expression for a young generation of artists. The exhibition fast forward, with works from Sammlung Goetz, presents evening screenings of over 60 film-, video- and slide-installations as well as 18 films.

As a collector, Ingvild Goetz became interested in film- and video-based works at an early point in her activities. Over the years, she established an international body of media art whose extent and significance make it one of the world's leading collections. Its focus lies on works from the 1990s to the present. For the first time, a joint project between Sammlung Goetz and the ZKM presents an extensive look at this media art collection and surveys the developments of a younger generation of artists.

Gutai. Collection + Goetz

| Pinakothek der Moderne | Sammlung Moderne Kunst (Modern Art Collection)

Since 2019, in the context of the Sammlung+ format, the Sammlung Moderne Kunst has presented artistic discoveries, new acquisitions and thematic foci in the Pinakothek der Moderne in collaboration with partners and foundations. This has led to the emergence of new perspectives on the collections, new insights into research work and the establishment of new dialogues. It is in this framework that a selection of paintings by the Japanese artist group Gutai from the Sammlung Goetz will be presented in room 23, within a series of rooms focusing on near-contemporaneous regional and German abstraction phenomena under the title “Walk the Line.”  Founded in 1954 by the abstract painter Jiro Yoshihara, Gutai was one of the 20th century’s most innovative artistic movements, which combined action, abstraction and materiality.
