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.

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.
