The Sammlung Goetz includes more than 4,500 works by over 500 artists; in addition to drawings, prints, paintings and photographs, the collection features a variety of video works and site-specific installations. Although the collection began with a number of Arte Povera works, its inventory – continually expanded over the years by Ingvild Goetz - now includes works by American artists of the 1980s, the Young British Artists and individual German and international artists.
The artworks are presented to the public in two six-month exhibitions each year. The Sammlung Goetz also collaborates with several institutions, including the ZKM Karlsruhe, the Villa Stuck and Haus der Kunst in Munich, which allows the collection to be presented in other contexts.
Ingvild Goetz’s collecting approach focuses on the media diversity of current forms of artistic expression and the constant training and expansion of our perceptive spectrum.  This idea is corroborated by a vast reference library, which includes about 7,000 scholarly volumes, with a concentration on the art from the 1950s.

Opened in 1993, the Sammlung Goetz building was designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. The cube made of birch wood and frosted glass has since become an architectural icon and one of Herzog & de Meuron’s most showcased buildings. In order to do justice to the presentation of the collection’s media artworks, the building was extended in 2004 with BASE103, an addition to the existing building in the basement, which offers increased exhibition space. Visits to the collection and use of the extensive reference library are free of charge and possible during opening hours with prior telephone reservations. Guided tours are offered on request.
