Happy Birthday! 20 years of Sammlung Goetz

This year, Sammlung Goetz celebrates its 20th anniversary. What better reason could there be for a retrospective of important artists who have greatly influenced a younger generation?


With Shusaku Arakawa, Mária Bartuszová, Louise Bourgeois, Geta Brătescu, William Copley, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Neil Jenney, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama and George Segal.

To mark this anniversary, Sammlung Goetz opens its archive to show more than 50 works by ten artists who have not been exhibited for many years, or in some cases, ever. There will be a reunion with old friends in specially set up artist rooms as well as some new discoveries in exciting comparisons. These include, for example, an early figurative installation by Yayoi Kusama from 1966, a large shadow play by Hans-Peter Feldmann and sculptures by Louise Bourgeois from all creative periods. In addition to installations, paintings and sculptures, works on paper will also be presented. These were the starting point of the collection.

Concept: Karsten Löckemann and Ingvild Goetz
Curator: Karsten Löckemann

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.

Cyrill Lachauer. I am not sea, I am not land

Sammlung Goetz in Haus der Kunst

Cyrill Lachauer (*1979 in Rosenheim, lives and works in Berlin and Los Angeles) develops his extensive projects on long journeys, and delves deeply into the local cultures of the places he visits. For the exhibition by the Sammlung Goetz in the former air-raid shelter of Haus der Kunst, Lachauer has created a new multi-part installation, which includes films, videos, photographs and texts.
