K.O. GÖTZ | Retrospective to mark his 100th Birthday

March 21 to June 15, 2014
MKM Museum Küppersmühle for Modern Art

The name K.O. Götz is associated with the German Informel movement perhaps more closely than any other figure. In the February 2014, the artist celebrated his 100th birthday – a fitting occasion, therefore, for the MKM Museum Küppersmühle to honour this great master of abstract Informel art and celebrate his life’s work with a comprehensive retrospective. Featuring some 70 works, drawn from seven decades of creative activity, the show traces his development from the mid-1930s to more recent works from 2010, many of which are held in the Ströher Collection. This impressive oeuvre vividly illustrates the striking intensity with which K.O. Götz has dedicated himself throughout his long career to the major genre of painting – and also affords a keen insight into the enormous diversity of his abstract creations.
