Sammlung Goetz

Thomas Schütte

A fundamental distrust of art institutions is the characteristic element in the works of Thomas Schütte. He subtly formulates this criticism with seemingly classic works.

The Sammlung Goetz holds over 50 works by Schütte from the past 20 years. These represent various complexes of works created during his years of study at the Academy in Dusseldorf up to the present day. They also reflect the collector's personal interest in the artist, however. In close cooperation with Thomas Schütte, a retrospective was developed with a scope not seen since the mid 1990s in Germany. The exhibit includes examples of his architectural models, sculptures, installations, water colors, photographs and drawings as well as studies from the early 1980s that have never been shown.
Schütte's skepticism about the traditional conception of art and its function in public spaces is manifested throughout. It is also expressed by the radical and experimental practice of including unsuccessful attempts as part of the artist's oeuvre.

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.
