Sculptural Sphere

The works in the exhibition Sculptural Sphere go far beyond the framework of the traditional concept of sculpture. Due to the diverse media used for them, they reference socio-political reality that goes far beyond questions inherent to art.

With Martin Boyce, Thomas Demand, Mark Manders, Manfred Pernice and Liisa Roberts.

"Sculptures fascinate me", says Ingvild Goetz. "Some artists – like Donald Judd – work exclusively in a formal context. In this case I am interested in the aesthetics and the formal or logical rigor. Other artists, in contrast, link formal aspects to content-based connotations and narrative contexts expressed by the object. The viewer may notice these at the outset or due to associations – or completely subjectively, free of any information that the artist may provide". This second group contains works by Martin Boyce, Thomas Demand, Mark Manders, Manfred Pernice, Liisa Roberts and Tom Sachs, who are all included in the exhibition Sculptural Sphere. Significantly, not all of these are sculptors, but also artists who integrate sculptural questions with other media. With over 60 artworks, the exhibition conveys Ingvild Goetz's view of current tendencies in modern sculpture.

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.

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.
