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.

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.
