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

Imi Knoebel

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.
