Female Identities? KünstlerInnen der Sammlung Goetz

"Art always has to have something to do with me. This is why a constant preoccupation with the new and the contemporary is a personal concern to me and one that affects my collecting." (Ingvild Goetz)

With Nobuyoshi Araki, Diane Arbus, Nan Goldin, Sarah Jones, Daniela Rossell, Jessica Stockholder, Rosemarie Trockel, Rachel Whiteread and Andrea Zittel.

Critically questioning one's own identity – which Ingvild Goetz does time and time again by committing herself to the art of her age – is also the starting point for the new selection of works from her extensive collection that is on display in the Neues Museum Weserburg.
Take Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin's photographs, or Andrea Zittel's pieces of clothing and dining room tables, or Jessica Stockholder's couch parts, or Rosemarie Trockel and Rachel Whiteread's body castings or even fragments – do these reflect female identities? This was the question – or even conflict – that continually confronts visitors to the 2004 exhibit in the Neues Museum Weserburg. The selection of photographs changes twice during the course of the show.

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.
