Street Life and Home Stories

Photographs from the Goetz Collection

Text by Michael Buhrs, Verena Hein, Karsten Löckemann.

Featured image, Jeff Wall's <i>Jell-O</i>, 1995, is reproduced from <a href="9783775727839.html">Street Life and Home Stories</a>, in which Ulrich Bischoff writes, "<i>Jell-O</i>, 1995, is a cinematographic production: the setting is, as always, the result of extremely exacting and precise preparations. Like the stage set in a theater, it is essential for an understanding of the piece that is performed. Allegorical and everyday elements blend into a clear image: a nocturnal scene in a kitchen with modern furnishing and fittings present us--in the manner of a film still--with two young girls abandoning themselves to the fascination of lemon jelly."Since she began collecting in the 1960s, Ingvild Goetz has been assembling one of the most impressive photography collections in Europe, now housed in an extraordinary museum building designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron. Goetz has consistently loaned works to promote a wider public reception. Published on the occasion of an exhibition at Villa Stuck in Munich, Street Life and Home Stories features the work of 25 artists from the collection who transform city streets and domestic environments into staged scenarios. The world-renowned artists in this volume include Francis Alÿs, Nobuyoshi Araki, Diane Arbus, Stan Douglas, William Eggleston, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Ed van der Elsken, Walker Evans, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Nan Goldin, Paul Graham, Evelyn Hofer, Candida Höfer, Sarah Jones, Steve McQueen, Robin Rhode, Daniela Rossell, August Sander, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, Thomas Struth, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall and Tobias Zielony.

FROM THE BOOK
"Photography is about a particular moment that is captured, and as a viewer one can immerse oneself in this moment, look at a face and see a life, see aliveness behind it: it becomes a very focused and fascinating interaction. In video, on the other hand, it is the moving image that dominates, which means that the face continuously changes, the focus is not so much on a moment as on the narrative. It is different from what happens in photography. I don't think that this happens in painting anymore, at least not today. Prior to photography, classical painting naturally did try to capture this one moment, or at least to come as close as possible to it. In contemporary painting that no longer happens, nor is it the purpose of painting anymore."

Ingvild Goetz, excerpted from her interview with Michael Buhrs and Verena Hein in Street Life and Home Stories.
