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.

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.
