I WANT TO SEE
HOW YOU SEE.
JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION

up

Hall for Contemporary Art 16 April — 25 July 2010

The exhibition at the Hamburg’ Deichtorhallen will be the first extensive presentation of the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION shown in the context of a museum worldwide. The exhibition, which will commence April 16, 2010, will feature 65 works by 54 artists from this very young private collection in a space extending of over 3,000 square meters.

The main focus of the presentation will be on film and video works produced in the last 40 years, a time range which applies to the entire Julia Stoschek Collection. Classics of video art, such as Marina Abramović’s Art must be beautiful/ Artist must be beautiful dating from 1975-76, Vito Acconci’s Opening s (1970) and Chris Burden’s Shoot (1971 are conjoined with more recent works of younger artists, giving viewers the opportunity to relate to the history of the still rather young genre of video art. The majority of the works were actually produced after 2000. They range from lyrical pieces such as Heike Baranowsky’s Mondfahrt and complex animation films such as Björk’s Wanderlust in 3D up to elaborate spatial installations by artists such as Monica Bonvicini, Anthony McCall, and Nathalie Djurberg.

The video works are accompanied 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 title of the exhibition I Want To See How You See was derived from the work in the show by Pipilotti Rist (2003) of the same name. Most of the presented works reflect the production process or question the validity of the image via the staged realites generated in the realms of film or video. A recurring subject is the image of women as conveyed by the mass media.
