Pictures in Time

Tranquility versus motion, pictorial art versus formal abstraction – the new exhibition in Haus der Kunst presents 13 works of media art from Sammlung Goetz that use cinematic images to investigate the concept of painting.

With Yael Bartana, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Gary Hill, Cyrill Lachauer, Seth Price, Florian Pumhösl, Robin Rhode, Anri Sala, Markus Selg, Kathrin Sonntag,Sam Taylor-Wood and Liang Zhao.

The sixth part of the cooperation between Haus der Kunst and Sammlung Goetz was dedicated to the connection between the image and the moving picture. The selected works reference painting, especially abstraction, still lifes or the tableau vivant. The spectrum of these references ranges from the transfer of formal and stylistic means of painting to the media of video, film, digital animations and slide projection all the way to conceptual analyses of painting in film, such as those done by Seth Price.

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.
