HAUTNAH. Die Sammlung Goetz

The exhibition HAUTNAH in Museum Villa Stuck spotlights Sammlung Goetz's core interests. Featuring 100 works by 20 contemporary artists, this show focuses on questions of sexuality, identity and the boundaries of human existence.

With Doug Aitken, Chantal Akerman, Kutlug Ataman, Matthew Barney, Janet Cardiff, Saul Fletcher, Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Douglas Gordon, Jürgen Klauke, Yayoi Kusama, Bjørn Melhus, Tracey Moffatt, Pierre Molinier, Catherine Opie, Gabriel Orozco, Ulrike Ottinger, Tony Oursler, Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith.

"My collecting work is very subjective and relates to issues that I wish to confront myself", explains collector Ingvild Goetz in an interview. The exhibition in Museum Villa Stuck thus provides not only a good overview of current developments in the art world but also an insight into Ingvild Goetz's collecting strategy. On display are videos, films, photographs, installations, sculptures and drawings from the extensive holdings of Sammlung Goetz. Critical social issues are treated without any moralizing undertone, but with an intensity that literally goes under the skin, i.e. 'hautnah'.

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.

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.
