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.

Sammlung Goetz

Autumn/Winter 2021

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

Autumn/Winter 2021

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.
