Gerwald Rockenschaub. re-entry (third ear edit)

In his complex oeuvre, Gerwald Rockenschaub uses the entire range of minimalistic and formalistic expressions. In Sammlung Goetz’s Base 103 exhibition space, the artist presents works from the collection as well as a new site-specific installation.

In contrast to radical Minimal Art, Rockenschaub (*1952) has never distanced himself from popular culture; rather, the artist has continually sought a cross-over between art, design, media and everyday life. He freed the minimalistic concept from its rigid rules and created an individual "funky minimalistic" style. In addition to developing an independent artistic position, Rockenschaub also works as an internationally successful DJ. Art and music are a fruitful symbiosis. His early Neo-Geo style paintings have exactly the format of LP covers. In Base 103, he continues the artistic dialogue surrounding the creative freedom of minimal art pursued in the exhibition FarbRaumKörper using other means and as an extension into the space.

Sammlung Goetz

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.
