Modernism in Dialogue with Contemporary Art from the Sammlung Goetz

An encounter between two prestigious museum collections.
This catalog sheds new light on the relationship between modern and contemporary art across generations and genres, focusing on the encounter between the artists featured in two outstanding collections—the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Sammlung Goetz, both located in Munich. Works of art from both collections, as well as from the Stiftung Ann und Jürgen Wilde, enter into a new kind of dialogue that emphasizes the thematic links between Classical Modernism and contemporary art.
Classical Modernism has long been a source of inspiration for the generations of artists that came after. In the early twentieth century, the avant-garde prepared the way for new treatments of color, line, and space. Many contemporary artists have studied the legacy of modernism and pose new questions concerning the body, gender, and identity. Featuring works from artists such as Max Beckmann, Louise Bourgeois, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Pablo Picasso, and many more, this volume offers fascinating visual insight into the history of art.
