Archive Highlights. Special exhibition on the occasion of the gallery’s 55th anniversary
03.11.2023 – 02.12.2023
On the occasion of the 55th anniversary of Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle in 2023, we are uniting selected works from the gallery’s history in a special exhibition that deal with spatial and temporal dimensions conceptually, thematically, or formally while reflecting the tradition, present and future of the gallery’s program on a meta-level.
With the founding of Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle in Munich in 1968, a forum for contemporary art was created, which over the years has presented a large number of artists with their first solo exhibitions in Germany or with their first solo exhibitions at all. The list includes artists such as Dan Graham, Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham, Karin Kneffel, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff and Anri Sala. To this day, conceptual content, the questioning of the connection between art and reality and reflection on the context of art form the unifying, cross-generation and cross-media link between the artists represented by Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle.
The partial return of the narrative and the re-evaluation of images, as practiced by the gallery’s artists since the 1970s, undergoes a re-evaluation in the context of the exhibition; the positions shown allegorize various programmatic stages in the gallery’s own history.Galeriegeschichte.
