Sammlung Goetz.Works ofArte Povera and Mike Kelley

This new presentation in Bremen presents works of Arte Povera and American artist Mike Kelley – two main areas of the Sammlung Goetz holdings – for an extended period of time.

In 1997, the Neues Museum Weserburg held a major exhibition with important works of Arte Povera from Sammlung Goetz. This was the first time that works from this genre had ever been shown in Northern Germany. Thanks to this long-standing collaboration, a new opportunity allows parts of this collection to be rediscovered in other contexts.

Sammlung Goetz

Autumn/Winter 2021

The Sammlung Goetz honors the artist Imi Knoebel on the occasion of his 80th birthday with a retrospective exhibition. 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.

Barbara Kasten. Works

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.
