Sammlung Goetz im Haus der Kunst, München

Brainwashed is dedicated to the pop cultural phenomenon of the mainstream, which reached its climax in the early 2000s. Characteristic of this mainstream were media formats such as reality TV, Hollywood film productions with the claim of being global events, an advertising industry dominated by self-improvement and an internationally driven star cult with countless music videos.

The exhibition explores the question as to which manipulative strategies in pluralistic societies were able to create a media consonance, a tone-setting taste in culture, including the propagation of political convictions or even hegemonic views of history.
The selection of works reveals the link between economy, media and politics, which aims at influencing people and maximizing profits. The artists brought together here critically expose commercial visual languages and their contradictory promises, stereotypes and clichés. Their artistic processes of deconstruction include new editing and collage techniques, as well as diverse practices of self-statging, such as medially communicated branding.
The extent to which the mainstream of the early 2000s resulted in – and continues to effect – a radically destabilised sense of self-confidence and personal judgement. This also affected the popular images we have of artists. The exhibition strives to raise awareness for these mechanisms of manipulated seeing and feeling, as well as the attitudes of reception influenced by them in event societies.

With assume vivid astro focus, A K Dolven, Cheryl Donegan, Ryan Gander, Jonathan Horowitz, Bjørn Melhus, Tracey Moffatt & Gary Hillberg, Shana Moulton, Seth Price, Paul Pfeiffer, Pipilotti Rist, Wolfgang Tillmans and Ryan Trecartin.

"For me my sun is, like all images, a functional object for seeing, for feeling, for dreaming, for understanding." In these words Michael Buthe (1944–1994) describes one of his central, recurrent motifs. With bright hues or gleaming gold, the artist collects the whole world, in fact the whole cosmos, within the circle of this heavenly body. The work of the globetrotter, who discovered on many trips the art and life from Morocco over North Africa, the Middle East  to Iran, encompasses archaic-looking assemblages, luminously colored works on paper and intensively treated canvases, collages and paintings in gold.
Michael Buthe knew no fear of contact: taking his lead from German Informal Art and American Minimal Art he is fascinated by non-European cultures, counters the cool concept of Minimalism with pronounced sensuality. Although a contemporary of the change from the industrial to the information society he deliberately drew like Joseph Beuys and the artists of the Italian Arte Povera on the sensual fullness of poor and natural materials. The artist changed numerous sculptures for new exhibition contexts. For just as lived life the artwork should transform permanently.
The retrospective at the Haus der Kunst combines loosely chronological important work groups. There are the early drawings of the 1960s and 1970s, the large-format fabric images, paintings, sculptures, assemblages including the only two remaining of his major installations, which appeal to all the senses of the audience, making Michael Buthe's spatial thinking tangible.
A cooperation between Kunstmuseum Luzern, S.M.A.K., Gent, and Haus der Kunst, Munich. Idea and concept: Heinz Stahlhut, Kunstmuseum Luzern.
