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'.

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.

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.
