Tour de Madame is the first major retrospective dedicated to the painting of Jutta Koether (*1958, Cologne). Long associated with writing, music and performance, Koether’s painterly oeuvre shown in this densely sweeping presentation highlights her pictorial and conceptual approach to painting over four decades. Koether’s painting constantly confronts the conditions of its own production, as a site of reflection on the act of looking and the perspectives such an act might bring to bear according to who is looking, how and when. The exhibition crucially highlights the historical significance of Koether’s oeuvre as a counter-history to the (male-dominated) canons of modernism and post-modernism, and the understanding of painting in our contemporary world as part of a dynamic set of historical, cultural and social relations.

The exhibition at Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean is organised as three moments. In the West Gallery, a retrospective view of 45 paintings created between 1983 and 2016 is presented in a salon style of double hanging that references collectors’ cabinets, and the memory of the first retrospective exhibition staged by Pablo Picasso in Zurich in 1932. Presented in the East Gallery is the eponymous Tour de Madame, a cycle of 15 paintings made by Koether for the exhibition. In the pavilion gallery, Koether presents her creative universe as a dynamically orchestrated audio-visual environment.

Curators: Suzanne Cotter, assisted by Vincent Crapon

Exhibition design: METAFORM architects
The exhibition Tour de Madame is organised in collaboration with Museum Brandhorst, Munich.
The organisation of the exhibition has benefitted from funding by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
