| On route with an ingenious allrounder

The art by the Canadian Rodney Graham may come across as light-footed, yet in reality it harbors an extraordinary complexity in terms of content and its use of media. His photographs, objects, paintings, films, texts, and compositions contain references to philosophy and literature, to the history of art and culture, that range from Erasmus of Rotterdam and Edgar Allan Poe to Sigmund Freud, Richard Wagner, and Kurt Cobain. While in his early oeuvre he still approaches his sources of material with a great deal of conceptual rigor, in their playful ambivalence between scientific factuality and imaginative fiction his later works are marked primarily by an enormous and intelligent sense of humor.

The Goetz Collection includes works from all of his creative phases and genres. This publication provides substantial insight into this all-rounder’s extensive artistic work of the last forty years and extends an invitation to set out on a journey of discovery.
