Goetz meets Falckenberg

„As part of this program, I am now very happy to be able to present works from the Sammlung Ingvild Goetz. As a person and as a collector, Ingvild Goetz is characterized by the qualities of tolerance and openness, but also by her rigor and consistency. We both agree that instead of being a show of strenght, the exhibition in Hamburg should feature artists and works that enter into dialog with each other.“ (Harald Falckenberg)

With Francis Alÿs, Emmanuelle Antille, Richard Artschwager, Matthew Barney, John Bock, Werner Büttner, John Baldessari, Nicole Eisenmann, Tracey Emin, Valie Export, Georg Herold, Andreas Hofer, Sarah Jones, Mike Kelley, Toba Khedoori, Karen Kilimnik, Martin Kippenberger, Abigail Lane, Erik van Lieshout, Jonathan Meese, Bjarne Melgaard, Sarah Morris, Cady Noland, Manuel Ocampo, Albert Oehlen, Tony Oursler, Laura Owens, Manfred Pernice, Raymond Pettibon, Neo Rauch, Daniel Richter, Matthew Ritchie, Thomas Scheibitz, Dirk Skreber, Ena Swansea, Tal R, Sam Taylor-Wood and Thomas Zipp.

At regular intervals, Harald Falckenberg invited other collectors to show works from their collections, either alone or alongside works from his own collection, at his exhibition space in the former Phoenix Works in Hamburg-Harburg. In the past, he has hosted the collections of F. C. Gundlach and Klaus Lafrenz, both from Hamburg, as well as the collections of Wilhelm Schürmann from Aachen and Anton Herbert from Ghent. For the Goetz meets Falckenberg exhibition, 100 works from the Sammlung Goetz and 75 works from the Falckenberg Collection were selected by Zdenek Felix, former director of the Deichtorhallen, who is thoroughly familiar with both. The curator’s aim was not simply to showcase the highlights from each collection, but to present diverse artistic positions in dialogue with one another in order to give an insight into the contradictions and divergences in contemporary art. At the same time, the exhibition also underscored some of the commonalities shared by the artists, as well as the singularity and individuality of the two collections.

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.

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.
