I want to see how you see. The collection is one of the most important sets of media-influenced art in Germany, on show works by over 50 artists from this very young private collection. The exhibition will feature some classics of video art, such as Marina Abramovic's ''Art must be beautiful, Artist must be beautiful'' dating from 1975-6, Vito Acconci's ''Openings'' (1970) and Chris Burdens ''Shoot'' (1971), but the majority of the works were produced since 2000. They range from more lyrical pieces such as Heike Baranowsky's ''Mondfahrt'' via elaborately animated films like Bjork's ''Wanderlust'' in 3D through to marvelous installations such as those by Monica Bonvicini, Anthony McCall and Nathalie Djurberg.
For the first time world-wide, the die JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION will go on show in a museum context and outside the private home of the collector in Düsseldorf. As of April 16, 2010 across a total space of over 2,000 sq. m. works by over 50 artists from this very young private collection will be on display in the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.
The exhibition title of “I want to see how you see” is taken from the work of the same name by Pipilotti Rist (2003). The exhibition will focus on pieces on film and video, as is the case for the entire Julia Stoschek Collection. They are rounded out by sculptures (e.g., by Nandipha Mntambo), photographic works (e.g., by Thomas Demand, Taryn Simon, Thomas Ruff) and installations (e.g., by Jeppe Hein).
The exhibition takes up the Deichtorhallen tradition of presenting major collections. In this case, the collection is one of the most important sets of media-influenced art in Germany, something no doubt related to the age of the collector (34). At the same time, the show links back to the “Fire, Earth, Water, Air” exhibition, organized at the Deichtorhallen in 1993 as part of the Mediale and the first display of media-influenced art at the Deichtorhallen.
The exhibition at the Deichtorhallen will feature some classics of video art, such as Marina Abramovic’s “Art must be beautiful, Artist must be beautiful” dating from 1975-6, Vito Acconci’s “Openings” (1970) and Chris Burdens “Shoot” (1971), but the majority of the works were produced since 2000. They range from more lyrical pieces such as Heike Baranowsky’s “Mondfahrt” via elaborately animated films like Björk’s “Wanderlust” in 3D through to marvelous installations such as those by Monica Bonvicini, Anthony McCall and Nathalie Djurberg.
