Just Love Me. Post/Feminist Positions of the 1990s from the Goetz Collection

| Bergen Art Museum, Bergen

| Fries Museum, Leeuwarden

Together with Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Sammlung Goetz created an exhibition entitled Die Wohltat der Kunst that includes artistic positions from the 1990s. It united works that treat questions of gender and identity in a new manner. The Bergen Art Museum (NO) and the Fries Museum, Leeuwarden (NL) present this exhibition under the title Just Love Me.

With Matthew Barney, Rineke Dijkstra, Tracey Emin, Mona Hatoum, Jonathan Horowitz, Sarah Jones, Mike Kelley, Karen Kilimnik, Sarah Lucas, Tracey Moffatt, Cady Noland, Catherine Opie, Pipilotti Rist, Daniela Rossell, Cindy Sherman, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Sam Taylor-Wood, Gillian Wearing, Sue Williams and Andrea Zittel.

'Just Love Me', advertises the cursive writing in neon pink by Tracey Emin. But the 'bad girl' of the British art scene does not make it easy for audiences to love her. She includes details from her intimate life in her works with a seemingly complete lack of embarrassment. Just Love Me is also the title of an exhibition with works from Sammlung Goetz that raise questions about the construction of gender and identity. Many of the works shown are photographs and videos. They critically confront body images formed by the media and show how these express the balance of power.
This issue is also one of the main emphases of Ingvild Goetz's collection: "I want my collection to shake up people or draw their attention – not only in the political sense but also through very good, i.e. aesthetically good art". As indicated by the subtitle, the exhibition included works by 20 artists and critically reviews feminist strategies of the 1970s.

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.
