Generations. Female Artists in Dialogue, Part 3

The third part of the exhibition leads back to artists such as Geta Brătescu, who was born in Romania in 1926 and passed in 2018, and the French-American sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010). In their work, both women provided fundamental impulses for exploring and dealing with issues of identity, gender and their own biographies, thus influencing the subsequent generation.

With Tomma Abts, Diane Arbus, Mária Bartuszová, Huma Bhabha, Louise Bourgeois, Geta Brătescu, Christa Dichgans, Lecia Dole-Recio, Tracey Emin, Nan Goldin, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Evelyn Hofer, Roni Horn, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Sarah Lucas, Lucy McKenzie, Sarah Morris, Paulina Olowska, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Elfie Semotan, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, Katja Strunz, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Rosemarie Trockel, Rebecca Warren, Gillian Wearing, Sue Williams and Rachel Whiteread.

As early as the 1960s, Geta Brătescu developed a performative approach, which she pursued in her films, photographs and drawings. Louise Bourgeois expanded the classic materials of sculpture with more commonplace materials, such as fabric, latex, tapestries and garments. In juxtaposition with selected works by Young British Artists and other artistic positions, it becomes apparent that their works have lost nothing of their relevance to this day.

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.
