Ken Brown – Letters from K.B. to I.G.

This studio exhibition in Sammlung Goetz presented a selection of the correspondence that took place between Ken Brown and Ingvild Goetz from 2002 to 2005.

Ken Brown wants to have other people participate in his life. Since 2002, he has thus sent letters and postcards with written notes, sketches, collages and photographs to some 20 persons. Some of the recipients are among the American artist's circle of friends. Others are people completely unknown to him who he would like to provide a particular pleasure. Ingvild Goetz belongs to the second category. His personal letters immediately stood out from the normal day-to-day correspondence of the collection. After some time, Ingvild Goetz began to answer Ken Brown at regular intervals. Their correspondence now includes circa 600 letters. In the studio exhibition, Sammlung Goetz provided a closer look at the dialogue between the collector and the artist.

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.
