JUTTA KOETHER - TOUR DE MADAMEMuseum Brandhorst
It would be hard to find another artist who has shaped the post-1980s cultural landscape as enduringly as Jutta Koether (b. 1958). With over 150 works, the survey show ‘Jutta Koether. Tour de Madame’ chronologically traces the evolution of her artistic production. In a 12-part series of images produced specifically for this exhibition, Koether – referencing Cy Twombly’s ‘Lepanto Cycle’ – will address her own ‘battle’ with art history. With many previously unshown works, the collection brought together for this show makes it possible to grasp her oeuvre in its historical significance: as a large-scale attempt to sketch out an alternative ‘counter-history’ to the Modernist, male-dominated canon.
