Nathalie Djurberg

Sexual temptation and cruel violence come face to face in the videos and installations of Nathalie Djurberg, who uses clay figures that stage nightmarish stories. The Sammlung Goetz invites you to an encounter with the work of the Swedish artist in Base 103.

Nathalie Djurberg is best known for her stop-motion films, which she has been creating since 2003 with dolls made of plasticine, fabric and synthetic hair. The colorful, childlike figures stand in a strong contrast to the films’ brutal content that focuses on sadism, sexuality and abuse. The artist is the director, scriptwriter and set designer of her films. The soundtracks are composed by her partner, Hans Berg.

Ingvild Goetz became interested in the artist’s work early on. In addition to her films, the collection now includes the installation The Experiment, for which Djurberg was awarded the Silver Lion at the Biennale in Venice in 2009. The work presents a surreal garden containing wondrous artificial plants, in conjunction with three videos. Presented in Base 103, the multi-media installation is accompanied by a film program and runs parallel to Cindy Sherman’s solo exhibition.

Gutai. Collection + Goetz

| Pinakothek der Moderne | Sammlung Moderne Kunst (Modern Art Collection)

Since 2019, in the context of the Sammlung+ format, the Sammlung Moderne Kunst has presented artistic discoveries, new acquisitions and thematic foci in the Pinakothek der Moderne in collaboration with partners and foundations. This has led to the emergence of new perspectives on the collections, new insights into research work and the establishment of new dialogues. It is in this framework that a selection of paintings by the Japanese artist group Gutai from the Sammlung Goetz will be presented in room 23, within a series of rooms focusing on near-contemporaneous regional and German abstraction phenomena under the title “Walk the Line.”  Founded in 1954 by the abstract painter Jiro Yoshihara, Gutai was one of the 20th century’s most innovative artistic movements, which combined action, abstraction and materiality.

Encounters. Artistic perspectives on cinema

| Deutsches Theatermuseum München

In the context of the Munich Film Festival and in cooperation with the Deutsches Theatermuseum, the Sammlung Goetz will present films by artists who explore aesthetic strategies of cinema. Through the use of innovative techniques and experimental narrative forms, the works on view offer a multi-layered reflection on film as a medium. So viewers can experience the full scope of artistic perspectives, an extensive, changing program has been created and will be shown in a specially designed cinema on the upper floor of the Deutsches Theatermuseum. A reading lounge in the foyer invites visitors to discover more about the exhibited artistic positions.
