Jutta Koether

Jutta Koether (b. 1958, Cologne, Germany) lives and works in Berlin, Germany, and New York, USA. Koether’s practice ranges from music, text and performance to painting, a medium that she has explored for more than four decades. Her paintings are often in dialogue with art history, music, language and performance, critically reflecting on the canon and the role of painting in contemporary culture and society. Approaching painting from a conceptual angle, Koether raises questions about ways of production and patterns of reception. Since 2010, Koether has been Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg, Germany. Recent exhibitions include Museum Abteiberg, Germany (2019/2020); MUDAM, Luxembourg (2019); Stedelijk Museum, Netherlands (2018); and Museum Brandhorst, Germany (2018).
