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.

Imi Knoebel

Sammlung Goetz

Spring 2022

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.

Barbara Kasten. Works

Sammlung Goetz BASE 103

Spring 2022

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.
