Sammlung Goetz BASE 103

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.

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.
