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.

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.

For the exhibition by the Sammlung Goetz in the former air-raid shelter of Haus der Kunst, Lachauer has created a new multi-part installation, which includes films, videos, photographs and texts.
