Published on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the Goetz Collection, this beautifully illustrated book includes nearly one hundred full-color reproductions of the internationally renowned contemporary art collection’s finest works. Among the reproductions are celebrated classics, including ones from among the Goetz’s impressive collection of works by Young British Artists and key figures from the Italian Arte Povera movement. But it also gathers many rarely seen pieces, spanning sculptures, paintings, watercolors, collages, new media, and installation art from the 1940s to the present.

A celebratory look back at one of Munich’s largest and most important private collections of contemporary art, Happy Birthday complements copious illustrations with an interview with the Goetz’s founder Ingvild Goetz, an illustrated history of all of the collection’s exhibitions, and essays by leading art critics and artists, including Katharina Bitz, Cornelia Gockel, Jerry Gorovoy, Leo Lencsés, Larissa Michelberger, Birgit Sonna, and Katharine Vossenkuh. Among the artists whose work is included are Shusaka Arakawa, Mária Bartuszová, Louise Bourgeois, Geta Bratescu, William Copley, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Neil Jenney, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama, and George Segal.
