Julia Stoschek Collection:
It was such an honor to view the collection in Berlin, the show there is titled “Jaguars and Electric Eels,” as well as the 10 year anniversary show “Generation Loss” at the main collection site in Düsseldorf. The Julia Stoschek Collection is an international private collection of contemporary art with a focus on time-based media art. The collection opened in 2007 and comprises installations, videos, photographs, paintings and sculptures. Each year a different exhibition presents, documents and makes different aspects of the collection available to the public.
Key areas of focus include presenting an academic analysis of the content of the works, highlighting art-historical references within the collection, and revealing connections between individual works. Expanding the collection, restoration and conservation work are also central to the collection’s ongoing activities. At its location in Düsseldorf, there are two exhibition floors with a total of 2,500 m2 available for its public shows.
