Additional Information: Winning the Brewers Towner Commission 2019 enabled Götz to develop his biggest public wall-painting so far, transforming the entire external wall space of Towner Art Gallery into a giant public art work. Dance Diagonal, painted on the outside of the Gallery, has turned the building into a piece of public art, accessible to a wide range of different audiences. It revisits the politics of early modernism, sitting somewhere between high art abstraction and street art. Dance Diagonal addresses early ideas of the Bauhaus and its commitment to social engagement and democracy. It has so far attracted 67,000 countable visitors and media coverage including BBC TV and BBC Radio and was ranked by Wallpaper magazine as one of the defining 15 public artworks worldwide in 2019. Festival of Love at the Southbank Centre in Summer 2014. Götz was invited to develop a series of public art interventions for the Royal Festival Halls ‘Festival of Love’: ‘Happy Together’ was a floor-piece for the Clore Ball Room of the Festival Hall; ‘I had a Dream’ was painted on the windows of the foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall and ‘What Love Is’ on the external wall of the Visitor Centre, above its entrance. The ‘Festival of Love’ was visited by over one Million people and had comprehensive national media coverage. Zig Zag Orange, is a site-specific wall painting for the café area of MIMA. It responded to then Director Alistair Hudson’s concept of the "useful museum", an institution dedicated to the promotion of art as a tool for social change; a museum as a place for its constituents, rather than for the art market.
