Some People Live and Breathe Fashion. Phoebe Wears Clothes.

True Style = the courage of your convictions? Perhaps.
Slightly off the beaten track is the private gallery Sammlung Goetz in Oberföhringer Strasse, Munich, Germany. Situated in park-like premises, the gallery sits in harmony with surrounding birch trees and conifers. Designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, it is home to collector Ingvild Goetz's eclectic collection of paintings, photography and video projections by artists like Cy Twombly, Bruce Nauman and Nan Goldin. Journalist Trisha Andres met up with Dr Stephan Urbaschek, Sammlung Goetz's Head of Exhibitions and Media Art to talk art and architecture. Sitting on the ground floor of the stunning building was a treat as we watched from the glazed windows, snow blanketing the permanent installations.
