This year, Goetz Collection celebrates its 20th anniversary. What better reason could there be for a retrospective of important artists who have greatly influenced a younger generation?
To mark this anniversary, Sammlung Goetz opens its archive to show more than 50 works by ten artists who have not been exhibited for many years, or in some cases, ever. There will be a reunion with old friends in specially set up artist rooms as well as some new discoveries in exciting comparisons. These include, for example, an early figurative installation by Yayoi Kusama from 1966, a large shadow play by Hans-Peter Feldmann and sculptures by Louise Bourgeois from all creative periods. In addition to installations, paintings and sculptures, works on paper will also be presented. These were the starting point of the collection.
Artists: Shusaku Arakawa, Mária Bartuszová, Louise Bourgeois, Geta Brătescu, William Copley, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Neil Jenney, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama and George Segal
