Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller. Works from the Goetz Collection

With eight works spanning the best part of a decade, from Playhouse (1997) and The Paradise Institute (2001) to Cabin Fever (2004) and The Killing Machine (2007), the complex oeuvre of Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller form a core element of the Goetz Collection’s more than 500 media artworks.

In close collaboration with the Sammlung Goetz and the artists, Haus der Kunst presents this important collection in the form of a retrospective solo exhibition hosted in the museum’s south wing under the curatorial guidance of León Krempel. Compelling visual images, richly ambiguous narratives and intense sound structures combine to create open-ended, multi-layered sensory experiences that jolt our sensibilities from their often simplistic one-sidedness. The works of Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller make us aware that there is often more to the things, objects and processes of everyday life than the purely functional.

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.
