Generations Part 2. Female Artists in Dialogue

In the second part of the exhibition Generations. Female artists in dialogue staged in the former air shelter in Haus der Kunst, the focus is on the body and the exploration of its limits, as well as the examination of social concepts of sexuality, gender and identity in moving images.

With Geta Brătescu, Nathalie Djurberg, Tracey Emin, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Mona Hatoum, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Yayoi Kusama, Ulrike Ottinger, Pipilotti Rist, Ulrike Rosenbach and Rosemarie Trockel.

Since its beginnings, video art has been used as a medium for self-reflection and the documentation of performances. On display are videos, films and installations by artists from the 1960s to the present day. The scope ranges from the playful-sensual exploration of intimate areas of the body by Pipilotti Rist and the deconstruction of the female body in the stop-motion films with Nathalie Djurberg’s clay figures, to the documentation of socio-political performances by Mona Hatoum, in which the Lebanese artist literally turns the inside out.

Curated by Cornelia Gockel und Susanne Touw

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.
