Generations Part 1. Female Artists in Dialogue

The Sammlung Goetz celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2018 with a three-part exhibition dedicated to artistic creations by women. On display are nearly 200 works, ranging from drawings, photographs, paintings and sculptures to films and extensive installations by more than 40 artists in an intergenerational dialogue.

With Carla Accardi, Geta Brătescu, Lucy Dodd, Ellen Gallagher, Katharina Grosse, Jennifer Guidi, Haegue Yang, Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kasten, Yayoi Kusama, Rebecca Morris, N. Dash, Paulina Olowska, Carol Rama, Pipilotti Rist, Sister Mary Corita Kent, Jessica Stockholder, Rosemarie Trockel, Pae White and Andrea Zittel.

The appropriation of ordinary materials, and creative practices from the arts of advertising and design are the focus of the first part of the exhibition. In addition to central positions, represented by artists such as Rosemarie Trockel, Pae White, Katharina Grosse, Jenny Holzer and Yayoi Kusama, there are also some new discoveries and rediscoveries, such as the young painter Lucy Dodd, who works with unusual materials, including liquid smoke and flower essences, or the American nun, Sister Mary Corita, who was also one of the most innovative Pop Art artists of the 1960s.

Curated by Ingvild Goetz und Karsten Löckemann

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.

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.
